Psychologist believed the future can still be his after death

Abstract:
Wesley Du Charme died April 15, but he said he'd be back.

Du Charme, 71, a psychologist, asked to have his head cryogenically preserved until scientists find a cure "for whatever damn thing killed me," he told family members.

His family agreed, said his daughter Nicole Frens of Missoula, Mont. His head is being kept in a metal box at Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, Ariz., an organization that believes bodies can be reanimated when nanotechnology has progressed enough to reconstruct a body. The head will be preserved in liquid nitrogen at minus 200 degrees. Freezing with water destroys cells, said Mike Noel, a friend of Du Charme's.
