ICELAND: Did chess legend Bobby Fischer father a child in the Philippines? So says the child’s mother and as a result, Fischer’s body has been ordered exhumed from his resting place in Iceland and tested for DNA evidence to prove or disprove paternity. The two were not married at the time and there is no claim of a civil union or even a common law marriage. But she does claim that the eccentric Fischer is the father and that they had a short relationship. The outcome is relevant because Mr. Fischer has no living heirs and a sizable estate. If the child is deemed his offspring, she stands to inherit all of it.
