DALLAS (AP) — Celebrated car designer Carroll Shelby's children and wife have resolved a dispute over how to bury him, two and a half months after his death.
Shelby died in a Dallas hospital on May 10, and his body is being held in a local morgue. His three children say their father signed a document giving them permission to have his body cremated, though his last wife, Cleo, said the document was a forgery.
Shelby's son and Cleo Shelby's attorney told The Associated Press on Monday that they're close to finalizing a settlement. They say his remains will be cremated then divided five ways between his children, his wife and burial at a family plot in East Texas.
The 89-year-old Shelby built powerful versions of the Cobra, Mustang and Viper sports cars.
