Bizarre Tale

once bitten twice shy... not so for the dead From the Internet, a shocking tale from Beijing......

During this year's Spring Festival, a family surnamed Wu sold their daughter's dead body for 35,000 yuan ($5,557) to a man surnamed Liu who wanted to perform a "yin marriage" - a marriage between two dead bodies - between the Wu's daughter and Liu's younger brother, the Global Times reported.

After the 'wedding', the two deceased lovebirds were buried in a single tomb. But later it was discovered that the tomb had been destroyed and Wu's body was missing. Enraged, Liu immediately reported about the disappearance of his missing "sister-in-law" A few weeks later, police tracked down five men, accusing them of exhuming and stealing the body of the girl to marry her off again, for a sum of 30,000 yuan, to another family, surnamed Li. This family was also in search of a corpse for one of their deceased male family members.
