    The body of an aspiring actress has been found in the water tank in the Mexico City apartment block where she lived, one year after she disappeared. Psychology graduate Carmen Yarira Noriega Esparza, 27, vanished in February last year, and friends and family feared she had been kidnapped by human traffickers and sold as a sex slave. Ms Esparza's severely decayed body was discovered in the tank after residents in the building complained that the drinking water tasted funny.

    The new owner of a foreclosed home in Cape Coral got more than he bargained when he went to inspect his purchase. William Wilson bought the light pink house on SE 19th Lane for $96,000 at an auction on Tuesday, according to the News-Press of Fort Myers. When he went to mow the lawn and check out the house itself on Wednesday, he found a corpse on the master bedroom floor. Wilson told the paper all that remained was the bones, skin and smell of the remains. Wilson said the inside of the house was a mess and it looked...

The man, a 62-year-old Clinton Township resident, has not been charged and authorities were awaiting toxicology results from an autopsy performed on the body of the 31-year-old woman who died.

    A Florida appeals court judge has ruled that an insurer is not liable for damages that occurred to an apartment after a neighbor's dead body 'exploded.' Judy Rodrigo battled State Farm for almost six years, arguing that the insurer of her Jupiter condo should pay for the clean-up of her apartment. She argued that the Keystone Condominium Association left the neighbor's corpse so long that the body's fluid leaked into her apartment.

She explained that the odor wasn't consistent nor strong; she only smelled it off and on until it got so bad she decided...

    Decomposed Chavez body may be too dead to go on eternal display After Hugo Chavez's death last week, government officials revealed that the late Venezuelan leader's body would be embalmed and displayed "for eternity." Just like Han Solo, but with less chance of him waking up again. However, the grisly plans may now not happen at all. According to Russian and German scientists who are experts in the field of embalming (what a job), his body is now a bit too gross and decomposed. "They tell us it’s very difficult because the process should have started earlier," said acting President...

    ISLAMABAD, May 6 : Al Qaeda confirmed Osama Bin Laden was dead on Friday, dispelling some of the fog around the killing of the “holy warrior,” and vowed to mount more attacks on the West. The announcement by the Islamist network, which promised to publish a taped message from Bin Laden soon, appeared likely to silence doubts expressed by some that he had died at all. In a statement online, it said Bin Laden’s blood “is more precious to us and to every Muslim than to be wasted in vain.” Supporters of the Pakistani religious party Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam burn a...

As the Vice President checked the flash card containing the word, he informed the student that "he was close, but left a little something off; the "e" on the end."

In a 5-2 decision, the court said Wisconsin law makes sex acts with dead people illegal. The ruling reinstates third-degree attempted sexual assault charges against twin brothers Nicholas and Alexander Grunke and Dustin Radke, all 22. The charges carry a punishment of up to 10 years in prison. A circuit court judge and an appeals court had dismissed those charges, saying Wisconsin law does not ban sex...

    Strange as it may seem, the dead have quit rotting in German cemeteries -- they are turning into wax-like corpses. Will the use of burial chambers solve the problem? Or is extensive soil reconditioning the only viable alternative? Cemeteries are supposed to be the quietest places on earth. But that notion may soon have to be laid to rest: Exhumation experts are currently conducting large-scale digging operations in German graveyards, belying the very concept of eternal peace. Corpses are no longer decaying in many German cemeteries. Instead, the deceased become waxen, an uncanny process that has become so rampant it...

    BERLIN (Reuters) - A 53-year-old German woman who was driving her dead mother across country to save on mortuary transportation costs was fined by police for disturbing a dead person's peace. "You're not allowed to transport dead people in your private car," said Ralf Schomisch, police spokesman in Koblenz, where the car was found after a tip-off from a mortuary. "The corpse was on the back seat without a seat belt, which in this case didn't really matter. But it was covered up with clothing. It is a misdemeanour."

    CINCINNATI (AP) - A dead woman dressed in white was positioned in a chair in front of a television set for 2 1/2 years because she told her caregiver that she didn't want to be buried and planned to return, the coroner said. "Don't show my body when I'm dead," Hamilton County Coroner Dr. O'dell Owens said Monday in describing Johannas Pope's wishes. "Don't bury me. I'm coming back." Pope, 61, died Aug. 29, 2003. Her caretaker and friend, whose name has not been released, left the woman upstairs in the home with the television and air conditioning on while...

  • Playing Dead (Dave Barry)

    Playing dead BY DAVE BARRY (This classic Dave Barry column was originally published on Feb. 19, 1995.) My advice to you, if you ever get invited to play the part of a corpse in an opera, is: Ask questions. Here are some that I would suggest: 1. Does the plot of this opera call for the corpse to get shoved halfway off a bed headfirst by people shrieking in Italian? 2. If so, is this corpse wearing a nightgown-style garment that could easily get bunched up around the corpse's head if the corpse finds itself in an inverted position with...

    Giant rare bloom gives off stench   The plant is said to be the largest flower in the world A giant rare flower is emitting a stench of rotting flesh after blooming overnight. The titan arum at Kew Gardens, in west London, will keep its smelly bloom for only one or two days. Commonly known as the "corpse flower" by Indonesians in its native Sumatra, the blood-red flower is 2.11m tall and last bloomed at Kew in 2003. The stench, likened by one visitor to "dirty nappies", attracts the insects needed to pollinate the flower. The plant, Latin name...

    A Serbian woman has been jailed for 18 months for marrying a dead man. Vinka Mijovic, 32, from Garas, was furious when wealthy Miodrag Tomovic, 68, died before he could marry her. So she bribed a local registrar to sign a marriage certificate saying the couple had both turned up for the wedding, and bribed two pals to be the best man and a witness to the fake event. She kept the death a secret for two weeks before suddenly announcing it and organising a lawyer to get his fortune turned over to her. But the scam was exposed after...
