Relax subby. Goodwill would have priced the body at 10 grand. It's in no danger of selling.

If we're going to recycle, let's get serious!

I've got a buddy who is an expert in dead bodies.

Best I can do is a gobstopper and an old lottery ticket.

I didn't realize the pic was so big. But at least it is better than my first choice, Long Cat.

I saw a dead body? I bought a dead body.

They'll be fine.  I gave them a deposit in the sock I donated there last week.

She just didn't follow the rules.

1. Dress body up as pageant contestant. Including forcing a smile if needed.

2. Place body ALL the way in the donation bin.

Why does the article have a helpful picture of 'What an old transexual E.T. might look like'?

Oh I see, she was unidentified for awhile.

Found a younger picture:

Some of the clothes smell like they were taken off a dead body, so I don't think this practice is new.  Some rookie employee broke store policy and called the police when they are suppose to dump the body in the lake.

Sweeney says Rhodes was traveling to marry him in Canada when her mother died.

That's got to put a damper on the nuptials.


Graham Sweeney of Hamilton, Ontario, tells the Times Herald of Port Huron he doesn't believe his fiancee is responsible for dumping the body.

So the body just rose from the dead long enough to shamble to a thrift store and then die again?  I'm really racking my brain trying to think of a scenario where' she's NOT responsible.

I left $50 worth of blow in a pocket of a coat I donated but did they bother to let me know? Nooooo. Guess I have to leave the blow with the body next time.

Jerks.

Wait, who did what where?

TFA: An Oregon woman...a Michigan thrift store...Kelly Rhodes of Salem...is jailed in Illinois...Graham Sweeney of Hamilton, Ontario...Port Huron Township, about 55 miles northeast of Detroit

According to the local paper she paid some guy $200 to cremate her mom. That seems reasonable.
 
2013-03-29 09:16:03 PM
Hey, she was an antique!

She's from Salem, OR and was travelling to Ontario to get married. With a pit stop along the way to dump mom's corpse at a Michigan thrift store.

FTA:  The St. Clair County sheriff's department said in a statement Thursday that 49-year-old Kelly Rhodes of Salem, Ore., is jailed in Illinois, where she was arrested on a warrant charging her with the misdemeanor. She's to be brought to Michigan next week.

She's being punished without a trial!  Being brought to Michigan is like being sent to purgatory.

Mrs Gew has been following this story all week.
The 49 year-old takes her mother from Oregon - on her way to Ontario to get married to an old flame.
Claims mom died some where on the way (ala Aunt Edna)
Gets to the border town to cross over to Canada - gives mom to 'this guy' who offers to have the body cremated for $200.00
Takes back off to Illinois where other family lives.

Soooo,
Why take mom along in the first place? Daughter was living with mom - apparently to gain access to money. Still, why take an old lady along?
If Aunt Edna dies along the way, why not just stop and leave her at a hospital, or even just call 911? It's not like they would close Canada ("Imagine if they closed Florida?")
If she dumped the already dead body, wasn't the purpose to avoid an inquest, and continue on her way and go to Canada rather than turn around and go back to Illinois?  Maybe they did close Canada?
If you dump the body for fear that it would delay your expected nuptials, why choose Goodwill? Do they have a 'Dead Old Lady Storage' sign out front?
Why trust 'some guy' you meet in the parking lot to cremate for $200.00? If that part did happen - he is probably so drunk and/or high now that he won't remember his own name, let alone where the money came from. And did they check to see if 'Honky Lips' was tagged on her car?

/This has been the highlight of more than a couple of conversations in the Gew house. We near the town where this happened
//I keep being told that it isn't funny - and stop calling her Aunt Edna.
