Two weeks after burial of deceased, report was received of analysis of contents of the stomach, indicating death by poisoning. The coroner desired to hold an inquest for further investigation five weeks after burial, and sought to exhume the body for that purpose. The husband of the deceased sought to enjoin the exhumation. Held, the body may be exhumed. Sejrup v. Shepard, (Minn. 1937) 275 N. W. 687.
