A DNA analysis of a biological specimen taking from late chess master Robert J. Fischer’s body during exhumation in Iceland in July determines that Jinky, a Filipino girl, isn’t his daughter as her mother, Marilyn Young, has claimed.
The results of the analysis was submitted at Reykjavík District Court this morning, visir.is reports.
The Supreme Court of Iceland ruled in June that Fischer’s remains should be exhumed to obtain a biological sample so that the heritage dispute surrounding his estate could be settled.
Fischer spent his last years in Iceland and chose to be buried in a remote graveyard in south Iceland.
