The body of Diane Schuler, the woman whose tragic wrong-way adventure on the Taconic Parkway left eight dead, will be exhumed at her family's request, as they try to disprove findings that indicate she was drunk and high at the time.

"Yes, the body will be exhumed," attorney Dominic Barbara told Larry King last night. "It's not automatic, but we have enough cause and reason to."

 
Daniel Schuler, who appeared on "Larry King Live" with Barbara, refuses to believe his wife was intoxicated at the time of the horrifying July 26 accident that killed her, her daughter and three nieces, as well as three other men in an SUV.
 
"I believe she had a stroke - something to do with her teeth," he told King. "Maybe medically she was messed up."
