Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD -

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.
