Exhumation of Bobby Fischer

When the reclusive chess champion Bobby Fischer died in 2008, he left no will for his estate worth nearly $2 million.

But did he leave an unacknowledged child?  Does the child have superior claims to his former wife, the IRS, and other relatives who are now pressing claims?

The remains of chess champion Bobby Fischer are to be exhumed in order to settle a paternity claim, an Icelandic court has ruled.
