Workers at a cryonics facility mutilated the frozen head of Hall of Fame baseball player Ted Williams, according to Larry Johnson who wrote Frozen.Â Larry Johnson is a former executive at Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, Arizona.Â He describes in great detail how Williams’ frozen head was repeatedly abused.
Frozen is due out Tuesday, and alleges gruesome behavior at the facility, where bodies are kept suspended in liquid nitrogen in case future generations learn how to revive them.
According to Frozen, in July 2002, Ted Williams died at 83 and his head was severed and frozen, and then used for batting practice by a technician trying to dislodge it from a tuna fish can.
Johnson was the chief operating officer at Alcor before becoming a whistleblower in 2003. He wired himself for his last three months, and gathered records and photographs reproduced in the book.
The book also includes other incidents, including the dismemberment of live dogs that were injected with chemicals in experiments, and suspicious circumstances with other frozen at Alcor.
