The body of country music star Tammy Wynette was removed from her tomb and autopsied in Nashville Wednesday in an attempt to answer questions that have arisen about the circumstances surrounding her death a year ago. The steps were taken a week after three of Wynette’s four daughters filed a wrongful-death suit against their mother’s doctor and her husband-manager, George Richey, claiming they were responsible for her death at the age of 55.
