Joe Frazier's body sits in Philly morgue

The body of former heavyweight champion Joe Frazier, who died from liver cancer on Nov. 7, lies in a Philadelphia morgue tonight. The body will stay there until a Pennsylvania judge rules on whether the body can be shipped to South Carolina, and buried in his native Beaufort, according to a source with intimate knowledge of the situation.

One family faction seeks to have Frazier buried in Beaufort, while another desires to have him buried in his adopted hometown of Philadelphia. A judge will presumably break the tie.
