You can't. You must find out if the estate of the deceased owner of record has been probated? If so, was this property listed as an asset in the Estate/Probate documents? If so, then the administrator for the estate has the authority to sell it. If it was not listed, then I believe the living(surviving) heirs have to go re-open the estate and then the estate can transfer the deed. Good luck. It can be a lot of work.
All the best,
