Mummy of Merenre I?

Found this photograph of the mummy of the Old Kingdom King Merenre I. The last time I checked it was in the Imhotep Museum though that was a few years ago? The mummy was found beside the sarcophagus of that kings pyramid at Saqqara. Upon the Brugsh brothers removing the mummy from the pyramid it broke into two pieces making it easier to carry.
