Grandmother's Frozen Head Up for Grabs in Colorado Court

(ABC News) — A Colorado woman’s plans for life after death have led her family and acryonics company fighting in court over custody of her head.

The body of Mary Robbins is tucked away in a Colorado Springs funeral home while her children protest a document she signed years ago that gives Alcor Life Extension Foundation the right to freeze her head in hopes of bringing it back to life some time in the future.

Alcor, which is based in Arizona, is the same company that took possession of baseball great Ted Williams’ head after a legal battle between his children over whether Williams really wanted his head frozen. The company was also accused of abusing Williams’ head once it had custody.
