Ted Williams' frozen head was mistreated
The author, Larry Johnson, was a former executive at the Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, Arizona. According to the newspaper, he wrote the book in hiding after wiring himself during his last three months of employment and stealing internal records from the facility.
Williams, the major's last .400 hitter, died in 2002 at age 83. His son, John Henry Williams, opted to have his father's body frozen.
