Ted Williams....

Photo of Ted Williams' head reportedly posted on Web site
New York Daily News

NEW YORK - Larry Johnson admits that he briefly posted a photograph of Ted Williams' severed head on his Web site and asked for "donations" to view it and others.

But the man who blew the whistle on the lurid conditions in which Williams' body is stored at the Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, Ariz., says he did so only to draw attention to the plight of Williams' remains and to help pay his mounting legal bills.

"In retrospect, I regret putting the pictures on the Web site," Johnson told the New York Daily News on Friday. "There was a series of photos, but only one was of Ted and that wasn't identified. It was a mistake. But at the time, I wanted to educate the public as to what goes on at Alcor and what Ted went through, and I was hoping to get some donations to help me out."

Rest of Story

This is just getting sick...Even a Hollywood sreen writer couldn't come up with this kind of stuff...Teds son should have his butt kicked for starting this whole mess...please, for all that is decent and holy...cremate Teddy and scatter his ashes across the Florida Keys like he wanted....

The whole situation is sad. I agree with DHC, do what he asked and let him rest in peace.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
