8 Strange Places Where Dead Bodies Have Been Found
If it's one thing I know for sure it's that we're all going to kick the bucket someday. Sometimes death takes you by surprise and pops up when you least expect it. It can come in many ways from murder to illness. Death can literally strike anywhere no matter what you're doing, no matter where you're at.
Indeed, death can occur in odd places. Most of us have heard stories before of bodies being found in drainage pipes and storm drains, crazy places. This got me poking around some websites and what I came across is just plain creepy. According to Mental Floss, many times dead bodies are found by other people who just happen to come across them. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. What's more, are odd places these bodies are found, and I do mean odd. Let's take a look at some bizarre places where bodies have been found according to Mental Floss.
LOOK: 8 STRANGE PLACES WHERE DEAD BODIES HAVE BEEN FOUND
Close to a Television Show Set
It was in 2006 that a mummified corpse of a man was discovered in the building where CSI: New York was filming. The show was shooting a season 3 episode on an entirely different floor. No connection to the show was found. The man apparently failed to pay rent and was discovered by building personnel.
In a Fish Tank
Things didn't end well for Brian Egg. In the summer of 2018, he was discovered in his home after neighbors and family reported him missing. The creepy part is that his body was found in a secret room, in a fish tank. His head and hands were missing. Two people who also lived in the house were found as suspects.
Down the Rabbit Hole
This one happened in the UK back in 2015. Death is not always malicious. A person taking a walk one day came across legs sticking up out of a rabbit hole. Turns out those legs belonged to a 50-year-old rabbit hunter who had suffocated after becoming stuck in the hole. The man's dog, who was nearby, was still alive.
In a Hospital Ceiling?
A man in a South African hospital who was laid up with a broken leg suddenly went missing. The staff looked and looked but couldn't find the man. Soon a horrible smell filled the hospital floor. Eventually, officials were led to a storage room where they witnessed fluid dripping from above. The body of the man was found up in the ceiling. What exactly happened and how he got there is still unknown.
What Is a Cryotherapy Chamber Anyway?
Pardon the pun, but this one is chilling. After closing time at a Las Vegas spa, an employee decided to use the cryotherapy chamber. The next day, when her body was found, it was frozen but that's not what killed her. According to the coroner, the cause of death was due to asphyxia, or lack of oxygen. The nitrogen that was pumped into the chamber apparently lowered the oxygen to deadly levels.
In a Bed...but Not What You Think
When two sisters didn't come back from their trip to Spain back in 2005, officials were notified. Staff at the resort the sisters were staying in found the two trapped between the Murphy bed and the frame which had fallen trapping and suffocating them.
Between a Cooler and a Hard Place
Here's another unfortunate end that happened not too many years ago. An Iowa man who worked at a grocery store had gone missing 10 years earlier. After the store was shut down, workers were moving the grocery coolers and found the man behind them between the wall. There's no telling why the man was on top of the cooler, to begin with. How could anyone not smell the body for 10 whole years?
Inside the Phantom Manor at Disneyland Paris
Imagine being inside the Disney Phantom Manor in Paris and coming across a real dead body. That's what happened in 2016. Employees discovered the body of a 45-year-old electrical technician who is believed to have been electrocuted while repairing a malfunctioning light.
Who knows where you'll be when that time comes? I know that when I go I want it to be in my sleep. Death is bad enough on its own, I certainly don't want to be awake when it happens. 2022 was a year we lost a bunch of notable people. Keep scrolling and see how many you remember.
