The body of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda is scheduled to be exhumed Monday morning. He died days after the 1973 coup that killed his friend President Salvador Allende and ushered Gen. Augusto Pinochet to power. Neruda’s driver alleges the poet was murdered by the Pinochet regime. In February, a court ordered his remains to be exhumed and examined for signs of poisoning, and preparations began Sunday at Neruda’s tomb on the Chilean coast.
