Family wants woman's head back

LONGUEUIL, Que. (CP) - A distraught family is offering $10,000 for clues to help solve a gruesome mystery involving a 68-year-old woman whose body was decapitated in a funeral home last July.

"Every morning we wake up and we say 'Where is the head?' " said 63-year-old Ghyslaine Lemay, a sister of Cecile Lemay whose family has lived in torment ever since the bizarre incident. Several of Lemay's relatives held a news conference Wednesday to appeal for help after police admitted their investigation is no further advanced than it was last summer when the funeral home was vandalized.

Closure, maybe; and to right a wrong

done to a loved one and the family.

I can't imagine how I would feel if something like this had happened with Orion. I would be devastated, and I would want something done about it.

What a horrible thing. Sad

why would you want it as in why would you want to take it.

In reply to: I think maybe he meant

When I read his question I was thinking (or not, as the case may be) of it in the other direction.

Not the first time I've done that Wink

There have been similar events.

Last month or so there were stories about parts of bodies being taken. As I didn't catch the entire coverages, I don't know if it happened at the mortuaries or if the graves were plundered. Nor do I know why.

But I do recall that Alastair Cook (of Masterpiece Theater) was one of them.

I feel for the Quebec family!

I believe tjere was a story recently
by Steven Haninger / April 27, 2006 8:12 AM PDT

about a women stopped in a Florida airport who had a human skull in her luggage. I think it was a customs issue of some sort. The story suggested the skull was part of her voodoo beliefs and was to ward off evil spirits. I would have to wonder if such a funeral home theft had a connection to this practice.

Some jerks just have no respect for the living [or] the dead. Sad

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
