After court fight, girl’s remains preserved at cryogenic facility
CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The remains of a 14-year-old London girl whose dying wish was to be cryogenically preserved with the hope of someday being brought back to life after a cure for her cancer is found are being kept at the Michigan-based Cryonics Institute.
The Cryonics Institute in the Detroit suburb of Clinton Township is one of three full-service cryonics facilities in the world. The others are in Arizona and Russia.
The unidentified girl’s remains were brought to the facility last month following her death in midOctober after a British High Court judge granted her wish. The matter ultimately was resolved in the Family Division of the court because the girl’s divorced parents did not agree on what should be done with her body.
