Dead Woman's Head Can be Frozen by Alcor, Colorado Judge Decides
Mary Robbins of Colorado Springs kicked the bucket a few weeks ago but not before signing documents giving Alcor the right to cryogenically preserve her head and brain.
Robbins, who died after a battle with cancer, signed away her noggin to Alcor in 2006, as well as a $50,000 annuity, with the hopes of being brought back to life in the future when a cure for the disease has been discovered.
When Robbins died on February 9, Alcor called the funeral home where her body was held, looking to collect the head.
However, Robbins' daughter, Darlene Robbins, claims her mother verbally opted out of her agreement with Alcor in the days before her death and that both the head and the $50,000 belong to her.
We called Alcor spokeswoman, Dbora Tarrant, for a reaction to the judge's decision. She wasn't in.
As for Mary Robbins, who is currently being stored in dry ice at a funeral home in Colorado Springs, her daughter now has 72 hours to appeal the decision, or it's freezer time.
