Poland exhumes former president’s remains to test conspiracy claims

In the next few months, Polish authorities will dig up the decomposing remains of more than 80 people who were killed in a plane crash six years ago — including former President Lech Kaczynski — to try and determine whether the crash was an accident or an assassination, UPI reported.

Poland’s governing party exhumed the bodies of Kaczynski and his wife on Monday, officials said, as part of the forensic examination. They are two of 83 bodies that will go through the exhumation and reexamination process for the investigation.

Kaczynski, his wife Maria and 94 others — including numerous government and military officials — died on April 10, 2010, when their Russian-made Tupolev Tu-154 jetliner crashed in heavy fog in western Russia.
