dna test: bobby fischer not father of 9-year old girl

the results of posthumously conducted dna tests establish that chess legend bobby fischer is not the father of 9-year old jinky young of the philippines. bobby fischer's remains were exhumed last month, by order of the icelandic supreme court, to obtain the tissue samples for the tests.

there was evidence that fischer, who died in in january, 2008, had considered jinky his daughter - including a card he had sent to her signed "daddy." while the test results resolve one claim to fischer's estate, the two remaining claims to his estate will be heard next month.

stay tuned!
