PLAYERS: Carroll Shelby
Celebrated auto designer and race car driver Carroll Shelby's family is fighting over custody of his body more than a month after his death. Shelby died May 10 in a Dallas hospital. But his body remains in a Dallas County morgue as his wife and children fight in court about burial plans. Shelby's children say in court documents filed in Texas that the 89-year-old Shelby gave his son Michael authority shortly before his death to have his remains cremated. But Shelby's wife counters the document was forged. Cleo Shelby, who lives in California, says in a court filing that Shelby gave her power of attorney two years ago. Another of Carroll Shelby's sons, Patrick, told The Associated Press on Tuesday he expects the dispute to take weeks to be resolved.
