If dna samples were able to be extracted from any samples taken this may reveal more information.
As for the media complaining about his exhumation , how is this any different to the Pharaohs being dug up and deposited around the world and being placed in various museums?

A syndicated newspaper cartoon strip for 30 years, "Bizarro" has managed to stay afloat in a new era of Internet content. Its creator, Dan Piraro, knows a thing or two about resiliency.

With 54 strip clubs -- including one that is "100% vegan" -- Portland, Oregon is America's unlikely strip club capital. But how did it get there?

Every year, due to typos, 12,000 Americans are erroneously declared dead by the Social Security Administration. Those affected endure the Orwellian nightmare of convincing the government that they are alive.
