Can we please let the man rest in peace?  In sporting news, Caroll Shelby, celebrated auto designer and race car driver passed away, check.  On May 10, 2012, check.  Shelby was one of the nation’s longest living heart transplant recipients, check.  Shelby’s body has been laid to rest? Not checked.  A custody battle is in progress over the remains of Shelby’s body as his son Michael, claims Shelby signed a document on February 8 and notarized to have his body cremated.  On the other hand, Cleo Shelby, the widow of Caroll Shelby, is claiming the signature is forged since Caroll Shelby didn’t have the ability to sign and she is the one that has the right to determine the funeral arrangements since she is the primary decision maker after Shelby executed a healthcare power of attorney after his 2010 stroke.  So, the courts will decide who has the right to Caroll Shelby’s body, which is wrapped in a body bag, preserved in a cooler and chilling at 36 degrees.
