Police Attempt to Use Dead Man's Finger to Access Phone

A bizarre case is unfolding in  Florida, where police are accused of trying to use a dead man's finger  to unlock a phone.  Victoria Armstrong says Clearwater detectives showed  up at a funeral home where her dead husband was to gain access to the  phone but failed in their attempt to use the fingerprint sensor. 

It's  sparked a larger debate about using a corpse to access technology for  information as police say they obtained the device within the proper  time period allowed under law.  Florida law does not say who has access  to a dead person's remains, only who is authorized to get rid of them.   It will likely be decided in court.
