Court Orders Man's Body Exhumed To Cut Off His Head 9

Orville Richardson had one simple wish for his end. When he died, he wanted his head cut off and cryogenically frozen by Alcor Life Extension Foundation. His family had other plans however, and had Orville buried. Alcor sued the family and the Iowa Court of Appeals has ordered the relatives to exhume his body so his head can be removed and put in frozen storage. Nothing warms the heart like a good head-freezing story.
