Home Alone

yellow-ribbonHow sad. A woman lay dead in the back seat of her car for 5 years without any one of her 9 siblings knowing. The 44 year old was notorious for not keeping in touch with her family and often went overseas without telling them. Because her mortgage payments were taken automatically from her bank account, it wasn’t until it ran dry that that she was discovered, frozen and mummified in her garage.

Calling Norman Bates, Norman Bates To The Front Desk.

Honey, sweetie,darl, digging up mummified women and dressing them up, is no way to go about your life. A Russian man, believed to be a historian, is being held by police after the remains of 27  females (in dresses) were found in his flat. The  bodies are thought to have been stolen from local graves. Dude! He was evidently planning to publish a guide book on exploring cemeteries.

Baby Mummy Missing

The craziest mummy story you’re going to hear all week. Picture this, nearly a century ago a baby died soon after childbirth but rather than bury it, the family decided to keep it as a memento. The mummified body then became part of the family, looked after in part by Charles Peavey. Relatives would give it cards during the holidays and it was also given a dried fish as a pet. However in 2006 Peavey’s 4 year old niece let slip at daycare about the baby, resulting in the 18 inch mummy being DNA tested. The results later confirmed the child had died from natural causes but unfortunately it couldn’t be returned to Mr Peavey because they couldn’t conclude that the mummy was actually related to him. Oh boy! Anywho, so in 2008 the baby was buried in an unmarked grave at Concord’s Blossom Hill Cemetery.OK, so now here is where the story gets a little weird. Last weekend authorities found the grave disturbed and when they exhumed it the mummified baby was no longer in the casket. Gone I say, gone. Hmm, I wonder where it went? Mr Peavey denies any involvement.
