    Forensic scientists studying human decomposition spotted an unexpected animal chewing on the remains. Its attention caught, a deer found eating a human corpse looks up, a rib dangling from its mouth. Photograph courtesy Lauren A. Meckel/Academia ================================================================================================================================ In an unprecedented finding, researchers spotted a deer chewing on a human rib during a study aimed at examining how human remains decompose in the wild. Scavengers take advantage of opportunities to eat, and carcasses left in the wild often decay quickly because animals can make quick work of the remains–even human remains. Known as “body farms,” some research facilities study how human...

    In Russian media, in the political class and among government officials, the reaction in Moscow was fierce, vocal and pugnacious. [snip] "And with every day, his behavior gets worse and worse. It seems that on the eve of the inauguration—January, 20—he will have nothing else left to do for himself but to break all the windows in the White House and to leave behind a pile [of shit] on the steps.”

    The woman who sold the freezer told her neighbor not to open it because a Sunday school class was using it as a time capsule. The truth wasn’t nearly so innocent. The woman, who asked not to be identified, told WNCN that she opened the freezer Friday, three weeks after getting it, because no one from the church came by. “A church was supposed to come, pick up the items inside the freezer. I was supposed to get the freezer back,” she said. “The church never came. I decided to open it.” Instead of a time capsule, the Goldsboro, North...

    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...

    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.

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A woman from west Knoxville found a body under her deck while hunting for Easter eggs with her son Wednesday. The Knoxville News Sentinel reports Tara Hanouskova smelled an odor that progressively got worse over the past week, but could never pinpoint the source. On Wednesday, however, while hunting for Easter eggs with her three-year-old, she noticed something with a pair of feet clad in tennis shoes in the crawl space under her deck. 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...

    SEPTEMBER 21--Meet Angela DeHart. The West Virginia woman, 23, is facing a pair of felony charges for allegedly stealing a hearse containing a body and driving home in it early yesterday. According to police, the hearse--parked outside the Ritchie and Johnson Funeral Home in Beckley--was swiped shortly after midnight on Tuesday. The driver, cops reported, had briefly left the hearse unattended--with its door open--while he entered the funeral home. The driver, Kenneth Bly, “pulled into the parking lot…in order to unload a corpse” from the 1996 Cadillac Fleetwood hearse, according to a court affidavit. As Bly moved toward the funeral...

    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...
