Case Study: Ted Williams

In July 2002, former Major League baseball legend Ted Williams died of a heart attack in Florida. John Henry Williams, Ted's son by his third wife, announced that there would be no funeral. It was later discovered that John had his father's body flown to the Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Arizona.
