Body of Entertainer Montand Exhumed

March 12, 1998|From Times Wire Reports

The body of French actor-singer Yves Montand was exhumed in Paris for a post-mortem paternity test sought by a woman claiming to be his daughter. The court order for the exhumation was issued in November, causing anger and revulsion in Montand's family and media appeals for the dead star to be left in peace. A panel of three doctors will have until June 30 to determine whether Montand, who died in 1991 at age 70, was the father of Aurore Drossart, now 22.
