Ancient Skeleton Found With Gun Under Shed
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Construction workers installing support for a new deck at a home outside Boston dug up the concrete floor of a shed and found a skeleton buried there with a gun that appears to be about 100 years old.
Police spokesman Frank Pasquarello says the items found Thursday afternoon may be from a market on the property.
Forensics examinations are expected to reveal the age and gender of the skeletal remains found at the 149-year-old home in Cambridge, a city of about 100,000 residents where Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are located.
Homeowner Rosalie Foster says the discovery was "unbelievable at first" and a little shocking. In her words, "Wow, I got a body!"
Foster says police told her she can claim the antique gun later because it was found on her property.

Body reported found at Canyon Lake
A Texas Parks and Wildlife game warden said the body of a missing San Antonio woman has been recovered at Canyon Lake.
The officer said the discovery was made near Jacob's Point on the lake's north side.
20-year-old Morgan Clark has been missing since a boating accident Sunday evening.
Divers had been searching an area off Jacobs Creek Point, where the lake is 80 to 100 feet deep.
Capt. Danny Villalobos of the Parks and Wildlife Department said Robert Gilson, 68, of Canyon Lake, was driving a boat near Little Jacobs Creek when it suddenly turned, throwing him and Clark from the boat. Gilson was injured after the boat circled and hit him. The boat then ran onto the shoreline.
Gilson was not wearing a tether that would have killed the engine when he went overboard, Villalobos said.
He said Clark was last seen sinking below the lake surface.
No one in the 22-foot Blue Wave was wearing a lifejacket.

Gang Accused Of Killing To Sell Human Fat
LIMA (Reuters) – Peruvian police said on Thursday they had broken up a gang that allegedly killed dozens of people and sold their fat to buyers who used it to make cosmetics.
Four Peruvians were arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, murder and trafficking in human fat.
The group stored the fat it collected in used soda and water bottles, which police showed reporters.
"We have people detained who have declared and stated how they murdered people with the aim being to extract their fat in rudimentary labs and sell it," said Police Commander Angel Toldeo.
In addition to those taken into custody, police said they were searching for others who bought fat from the gang or might have worked with it.
Remains from some of the victims were found at a rural house in the region of Huanuco where the group worked, according police video.
Police said they were investigating 60 disappearances in the area that might be linked to the gang.
The investigation started this month after police heard about a shipment of fat that arrived in Lima by bus from Peru's mountains.

American cage fighter 'rips out still-beating heart of training partner after fearing he was possessed by the devil'
A U.S. cage fighter ripped out the heart of his training partner while he was still alive after becoming convinced he was possessed by the devil, it was alleged today.
Jarrod Wyatt also cut out Taylor Powell's tongue and ripped off most of his face in a brutal assault that police said looked like a scene from a horror film, officers said.
They claim they found the 26-year-old standing naked over his friend's body with parts, including an eyeball, strewn around the blood splattered room in Klamath, California.
Wyatt allegedly told police he had drunk a cup of tea spiked with hallucinogenic mushrooms and became convinced Powell was possessed.
According to an autopsy Powell, 21, bled to death after his heart was ripped out.
The coroner said Powell had been alive when the organ was ripped out after his chest had been sliced open with a knife.
Wyatt told the police he thrown the heart into a fire along with other organs that he had removed from the body, it was claimed.
He allegedly told investigators he cooked the body parts because he was fearful Powell was still alive and he ‘needed to stop the Devil’.
Police had been called to the grisly scene after a third friend had witnessed a sudden mood change in Wyatt after they had all ingested wild mushroom tea.
Justin Davis told police he returned to the flat to find Wyatt naked and covered from head to toe in blood.
He noticed an eyeball lying in the middle of the floor and saw Powell's mutilated body.
A lawyer representing Wyatt has claimed the wild mushrooms caused him to act in such a violent way and had not control over his actions.
‘My client was trying to silence the devil,’ said James Fallman.
‘I think he was having a psychotic fit based on the mushrooms he had.’
Wyatt has been charged with first degree murder and torture.
Prosecutors added the torture charge as Powell was still alive when his heart was removed.

Police Say Man Suffocated Toddler, Shoved Screw Down Her Throat
McAllen, TX – EMT’s responded to Hector Castro’s apartment Saturday evening after receiving a call about a child who had choked on a screw. There was little anyone could do for his toddler stepdaughter – she was dead when emergency personnel arrived. The 2-year-old did have a screw in her throat, but an initial examination of her body revealed the item had absolutely nothing to do with her death – she had been beaten and suffocated. Castro told investigators he was caring for the child and trying to watch the World Cup game, but the girl’s incessant crying made him flip his shit. He admitted to severely beating the child, cracking several of her ribs in the process, before suffocating her. He then jammed the screw down her throat in an attempt to make the suffocation appear accidental. 28-year-old Castro, an undocumented immigrant and worthless fucking jackass, will face a capital murder charge at an arraignment set for today. It’s been reported that there were at least four other children living in the apartment – all have been taken into protective custody.
Father In Custody After 5-Year-Old Daughter’s Throat Slashed
LAKE CUSHMAN, Wash. – Not a lot of info on this yet, but what is known is quite horrific. A 911 call was placed from a home on Lake Cushman where a family was vacationing. When police and paramedics arrived at the house, they found the dead body of a 5-year-old girl. Her throat had been slashed with a kitchen knife. The girl’s mother and brother were still inside the home but her 29-year-old father or step-father was found on the gazebo outside. Based on statements he made to police, he was placed in custody for the killing. “In my 37 years, this is probably the most horrific crime that I have been involved in,” said Cheif Deputy Dean Byrd. “It’s very sad for me, the department, and for the community at large, it’s just a horrific crime, and it’s so senseless.”
Man, 81, Accused In Hammer Beating Of 71-Year-Old Wife
WEST HAVEN, Conn. - Police say that the 81-year-old William Murphy used a hammer like tool to bash his wife, 71-year-old Jean Murphy, in the head with after she fell asleep on the couch. To keep her from calling for help, he took the phone with him when he fled the with their car. Luckily, Jean survived the attack and was able to get neighbors to call 911. She was treated for fractures to her head and cuts to her hands. William was picked up later after being stopped for an unrelated traffic violation. He was subsequently charged with assault and interfering with an emergency call. Cases involving elderly spousal abuse always interest me for some reason. I think it is because I see it like a race where someone has almost made it to the finish line of a race but just decides to sit down and shit their pants. I mean, you almost made it through your life and this is how you want to end things? But at his age, he very well could have been suffering from some form of dementia and thought she was a nail. Who knows. His bond was lowered to $50,000 from $75,000 and if he is able to get out, he is to have no contact with his wife.

South African Corpse Wakes Up And Scares Off Morgue Staff
A 50-year-old South African man thought to be dead woke up in a chilly
morgue on Sunday and shouted to be let out, scaring off two attendants
who thought he was a ghost, local media reported.
"His family thought he had died," health spokesman Sizwe Kupelo told the Sapa news agency.
"The family called a private
undertaker who took what they thought was a dead body to the morgue, but
the man woke up inside the morgue on Sunday at 5:00 pm and screamed,
demanding to be taken out of the cold place."
This caused two mortuary attendants on duty to flee the building in the small town of Libode in the rural Eastern Cape as they thought it was a ghost.
After calling for help and
returning to find the man alive, an ambulance was sent to fetch the man
who had "been exposed to extreme cold for nearly 24 hours" said Kupelo.
He said the public should not assume that a sick person had died and contact a mortuary, the report said.
"Doctors, emergency workers and the
police are the only people who have a right to examine the patients and
determine if they are dead or not."
