"The D.C. medical examiner is preparing to conduct an autopsy on the burned body"

I may be going out on a limb here, but I'd venture to guess he burned to farking death.

That's what happens when Protestants cross into the Catholics turf.
2003-06-03 06:00:13 PM  

Uh....I think the autopsy would be used to insure that is what happened. After all the body might have been dead when the fire was started.

Just a Thought

Well, the body was in the back seat, so it wasn't like the driver was burned after having an accident. Somebody backed into the yard and set it on fire, probably to cover up evidence of the murder of its occupant.

Obvious tag?
2003-06-03 08:57:07 PM  
1. He's dead, Jim!
2. Suspicious only if it's outside of Jersey, if it's in Jersey, we all know what happened.
3. Did somebody photoshop 'yaoi'??? Her right eye looks like it's been disconnected or something? It didn't look that way this morning?
4. Is 'yaoi' pronounced "ya-oh-eee'? Yaaaa-ohhhhhh-eeee!
2003-06-03 09:00:54 PM  
what the heck is with all the people getting burned in todays' headlines?
2003-06-03 09:05:08 PM  
bTW: in case anyone out there wants to win yaoi's 'Gazillions of bonus points', the answer is the movie "The Last Day"

Great movie btw. :)

Actually, there's probably a very good chance that they didn't die of the burning. They've found a few burned/burning bodies up here in the past few years and all of them had been killed prior to the fire by gunshots/stabbing/strangling/cholestorol.

Glad I Live in the burbs.

2003-06-03 09:08:24 PM  
Suicide maybe?
2003-06-03 09:08:29 PM  
I noticed too - That Yaoi seems to be the fiftieth Asian woman on that side of the page this week. I can't pronounce it right either.

Angry Villian

Noooooooo!! Not cholesterol.

That's the best line I've read all day. Thanks for the laugh. :)

I always thought cars were asexual.
2003-06-03 09:13:25 PM  
A little backseat action with Frankenhooker? Was the head still attached?
2003-06-03 09:21:31 PM  
A crime has been committed down in D.C.
The cops found a charred body in an SUV
They have yet to determine how he died,
Someone murdered him because he lied,
about his relations with that chick yaoi.
2003-06-03 09:21:37 PM  
This just in: Man shot in the head twice, foul play suspected

2003-06-03 09:22:26 PM  
ok, that poem is just aweful.
2003-06-03 09:24:06 PM  
why did it have to be a cadillac. should have saved some money and used a '73 pinto.
2003-06-03 09:24:14 PM  
Well, yeah.
2003-06-03 09:24:55 PM  
Murdered in DC? Must be that "vast right-wing conspiracy"!

Maybe it was that guy "Donnie" Scott Peterson is talking about. Then again, does anyone know what Gary Condit's been up to? Is O.J. hunting for "the real killers" on the golf courses of Alexandria VA? So many questions...
2003-06-03 09:25:01 PM  
i dont know i thought it was original atleast...
2003-06-03 09:25:29 PM  
i forgot : there aren't any '73 pintos left. they all burned all by themselves.
2003-06-03 09:26:50 PM  
*shakes her tiny fist at her city*

Damn you Ramsey!!!!

It was Miss Vermont!

/lazy... just lazy.
2003-06-03 09:31:41 PM  
you all do realize that 'yaoi' means boy-boy sex... though if her name was yuri, she'd be lookin for a girl...
2003-06-03 09:35:34 PM  
Was the unfortunate dude a peasant, perhaps?
2003-06-03 09:39:48 PM  
i like the taste of over-cooked peasant !

" O.J. hunting for "the real killers" on the golf courses of Alexandria VA? "

What? That's where I live! Since when is he here? eeee creepy. no me gusta.
Somehow this burning car stuff doesn't seem so weird after living here inside the beltway all my life... really sad and scary tho.
2003-06-03 09:45:21 PM  
It does indeed reek of burnination.
2003-06-03 09:45:50 PM  
Waffle on one, blackened Marylander on two...

When you've lived inside the Beltway, weird takes on a whole new meaning in life...

What could possibly be suspicious about a burned vehicle W a body in the backseat?
2003-06-03 09:55:54 PM  
Another SUV related death.
2003-06-03 09:59:03 PM  
Washinton D.C.
Back seat
Burned Body

Must be CRACK!

emmmmm sounds like DC
2003-06-03 10:16:55 PM  
Of course there is an autopsy. It's not like it would be hard to escape a burning car. As big as Escalades are, I don't think he was trapped under any pillars.
2003-06-03 10:19:00 PM  
For those of us who haven't been on fark the past day or two, what's up with the sudden increase in poems and haikus?

Just wondering.
2003-06-03 10:21:18 PM  
people have no lives.
2003-06-03 10:28:41 PM  
In other news one of the guys on the new realworld looks like Bababooey!
2003-06-03 10:29:31 PM  

Whenever I see one of these "I'll torch the body in the car to destroy the evidence" stories in the news, I can't help but think of Viking funerals where they set a burning boat adrift with the dearly departed on it.

With our car culture out here I'm just waiting for an L.A. based mortuary to offer the "Angeleno Funeral." The family would have to provide their own SUV for the fire, though.

2003-06-03 10:37:50 PM  
The case is being called "suspicious" while the medical examiner looks for a cause of death

Cause of death? Trogdor strikes again, there's your cause of death.
2003-06-03 10:40:32 PM  
meh.. firestone strikes again.
2003-06-03 10:48:23 PM  
it's obvious folks... the guy handcuffed himself to a chair, beat himself up, then dragged himself to the trunk of his SUV, drove to an abandoned lot, shot himself twice in the head then set the SUV on fire...

it's not that hard to figure out, I mean I'm a Rocket Surgeon and I got it in the first minute.
2003-06-03 11:12:49 PM  

I hear that.
Folks need to get lives.
Go outside and enjoy the fresh air.
