It isn't too uncommon for people to be too awkward to deal with something so normal as death and the grieving processes of those around them. What is uncommon is consoling those people for a second time over their loved one's desecrated remains.
Kendrick Johnson, formerly a high school student from Georgia, passed away recently under fairly troubling circumstances at the age of 17. Even more concerning is what was discovered after his body was exhumed for a second autopsy.
At some point during the process of his body being autopsy the first time and prepared for burial, Johnson's, organs mysteriously and magically turned into old newspapers.
While this must seem rather unorthodox to even the most perceptive of voodoo practitioners, it is the only reasonable explanation. That is if we are to follow along with what all of those in charge of handling the deceased.
Of course as Johnson's family awaits answers as to where Kendrick's pancreas has gone the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has officially launched an inquiry into the entire situation.
Perhaps a band of grave robbers whom have no interest in anything other than decayed organs and dead people's clothes have been silently wreaking havoc in the night. Or perhaps those urban legends of coroner selling femurs on the black market and replacing them with old umbrellas is true.
Whether this act be a part of covering up Johnson's actual cause of death, as many in his community suspect, or something much more disgustingly comical one thing is for sure. Taxidermists treat roadkill with more respect than this boy has received.
