Houdini Possibly Exhumed For Signs Of Murder

Being a huge Houdini fan, I hope they get to do this — we’ll find out tomorrow. Snip from BBC America:

US forensic scientists are hoping to exhume the remains of escapologist Harry Houdini in an effort to find out whether he was murdered.
“We’ll examine his hairs, his fingernails, any bone fractures,” the head of the forensic team said.
Houdini died in the US city of Detroit in 1926 at the age of 52. There have been rumours that he was poisoned.
Relatives support the plan to examine the body and are due to formally request an exhumation on Monday.
