HENDERSON, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina widow has filed a
complaint with police, saying her husband's eyes were removed
The Daily Dispatch of Henderson reports Linda McMichael of
Warrenton filed the complaint last month. Her husband, 61-year-old
Elven Alston, died Feb. 13 at Maria Parham Hospital in Henderson.
McMichael has hired private investigator Sara Coffey to find out
what happened to her husband's eyes. Coffey also is a Henderson
City Council member. She says she's seeking an order to have
Alston's body exhumed for an autopsy.
A hospital spokesman says Alston's body was intact when it was
released to Wright Funeral Home. The funeral home didn't
immediately return a call Tuesday seeking comment.
McMichael says her husband wasn't an organ donor.
