An Iowa court has ordered the remains of an 81-year-old man to be exhumed so his head can be cut off and frozen.
The man had signed a contract in which it was agreed that his head was to be cryogenically frozen by Alcor after his death however when his relatives opted to bury him instead Alcor took it to the courts and won the appeal.
The Iowa Court of Appeals has ordered the relatives of a deceased Burlington man to exhume his body so his head can be cut off and cryogenically frozen. The court sided with Alcor Life Extension Foundation of Scottsdale, Ariz. , which sought to dig up the remains of 81-year-old Orville Richardson, who died in February 2009.
