Aum Shinrikyo cult founder Shoko Asahara, executed Friday for a number of murders, including those of people who died in the 1995 Tokyo subway sarin gas attack, told a detention house guard to give his body to his fourth daughter, sources close to the matter said Saturday.

But Asahara’s wife and some of his other children want his body and Saturday they submitted a written request to Justice Minister Yoko Kamikawa, according to their lawyer.
