Dead of Night

by on Jul.07, 2014, under Crime, Family, Health

Politics make strange bedfellows, and so does a successful marriage. When Marcel H died at the age of 79, his 69 year old widow was devastated. She wanted him to remain at her side, so she didn't report the death. marcelh01 It is believed that he died from an asthma attack in November 2012. His doting wife continued to sleep with the corpse despite the smell of decomposition. marcelh02 Neighbors didn't report any unusual odors, but authorities were called after the landlord claimed that the couple hadn't paid their rent since 2012. When they entered the apartment, they found Marcel's mummified remains. marcelh03 Philippe Boxho, pathologist at the Forensic Center of Liege explained,“A body can mummify in a dry, warm environment. It takes at least a week to reach such a state. In this case the body had rotten in the bed and his internal organs had melted and liquefied.” marcelh04 “This liquid would have spread and the bed would have been swarming with insects as the body rotted, this would have been a real shame. Even though the smell of human decay is quite specific, many people equate that smell to the smell of garbage and once the body has become rotten the smell does decrease significantly.” death_maiden “This is not the first time I have made a discovery of this kind, I've been faced with two or three other occasions where people have continued to sleep with the corpse of their partner.” said Boxho.

Road Kill

by on Aug.27, 2012, under Culture, Health

China is experiencing unprecedented economic growth, and over the past twenty years, traffic in China has exploded. As the middle class expands, people buy cars and commute to work. The new industry has resulted in a huge increase in truck traffic, and trucks are the main cause of road congestion and accidents.

When a scooter pulled out in front of him, the driver of this truck swerved to avoid him, but the heavily laden truck overturned.

The driver, Yang Fu, told police in the Yuhuan, Zhejiang province that he was forced to brake hard when the scooter emerged in front of him, turning over and spilling his load of hot tar.

The victim's scooter was crushed under the overturned truck.

The victim was buried under 10 tons of hot tar.

"The bitumen poured out all over the man on the bike. You could smell it burning. There were some terrible screams and then silence," said witness Liu Jin. Firefighters needed special heat proof boots as they searched for the biker's body in the tar, which was being kept at a temperature of 100 degrees Celsius in the truck

"He was beyond saving. He would have been dead within the first minute," said an emergency services spokesman.

These Are a Few Of My Favorite Things

by on May.11, 2011, under Crime, Culture, Religion

When you come across a pile of bodies, it's only natural to wonder about them. What kinds of families cherished them? What fantastic places did they travel to? What parts did they contribute after their demise? According to a research report released by the Mozambican Human Rights League in partnership with Childline South Africa in Durban, the most sought-after human body part for use in harmful traditional practices, including witchcraft, in South Africa and Mozambique are the male genitalia.

The study also found South Africa had created a market for body parts trafficked from Mozambique. At least one mutilation occurred in both countries every two weeks during the 14 months of the study between 2008 and 2010. Male and female genitalia, tongues, ears, heads and breasts were among the body parts that topped the list of those most sought after in the two countries. The research concluded that body parts were trafficked regularly and organs often taken from victims while they were alive or directly after they had been murdered. Many participants in the research believed the body parts were to be sold or used for activities relating to witchcraft, muti (medicine) or harmful traditional practices. “The belief was that the use of body parts in muti was to create powerful traditional medicine based partly on human body parts,” said Fellows.

We Didn’t Start the Fire

by on Feb.10, 2011, under Crime, Culture, Religion

Jesus loves the little children, but so does Buddha. Most Buddhists are vehemently anti-abortion. It was a surprise when police discovered 348 fetuses wrapped in white plastic bags at the Phai-nguern Chotinaram temple.

Bags are labeled "Taco Filling"

Neighbors alerted authorities about the smell of decay, originally attributed to the monks' bad hygiene. Police returned later to find a total of 2002 fetuses.

The fetuses are thought to be the remains of illegal abortions. Buddhist temples traditionally have morticians to prepare bodies for cremation.

Col. Sombat Milintachinda, chief of the investigation team, said that the morticians admitted receiving fetuses for about four years. They keep them until they dry, so that they're easier to burn.
