They May Be Slightly Too Late

Alcor Life Extension Foundation, a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based non-profit corporation, wants local courts to allow it to disinter a Burlington man so he can be preserved in a cryonic process.

Unfortunately for the deceased, his family didn’t bother to tell Alcor he’d died until he’d been in the ground for months. Not that this would have mattered to him: according to his will, he wanted his remains frozen “regardless of the severity of the damage from such causes as fire, decomposition, autopsy, embalming.”
