It is possible if the conditions are right.  It has been done a handful of times.

Yes it is possible and several places make a kit called a skin print kit to help lift prints off of deceased persons.

porta-lab
A latent print can be recovered from a dead body by the use of the
fuming process. By employing a portable fuming apparatus a latent print
can made visible and even improved with the use of newly developed UV
enhancing material.
