Bobby Fisher's body was exhumed briefly by the Icelandic authorities this week (5 July 2010) to obtain DNA evidence in a paternity suit by the mother of a 9 year old girl who claims her daughter is Fischer's child.

A tent was placed over the gravesite while the exhumation took place. Present were a doctor, a priest and the local sheriff, Ólafur Helgi Kjartansson. Fischer was reburied after DNA samples were taken, according to Kjartansson.
