Oznog: Wow really?"Entombment in Concrete" is far less practical than movies might lead us to believe.Sites aren't simply left unattended while being poured. Pouring concrete is a busy, coordinated dance of multiple teams. It's not as secret and quiet a way to dispose of a body.Most concrete isn't poured into large, empty voids. There's rebar reinforcement and the body may not fit through it.You couldn't just drop it "into" wet cement, it'd just sit there on top. For that matter it may tend to want to "float up" out of wet cement. Maybe not all the way, but any motion during curing would spoil the levelness of the surface and the inspection would not let that irregularity go. If it's a foundation, it could compromise the whole building. Maybe it's just a warehouse floor- still, you can pay off the building inspector to keep quiet, but everyone who works there will notice it.A body would be a void in the concrete. It's a severe discontinuity in the concrete's strength. It's also not as hard to find as it seems, not today. Ground-penetrating radar will show it right there, and GPR inspection is not unusual in the industry.It just isn't a very practical way to do it. Chances of getting detected are actually kinda high, and the possible trail of evidence is also high. Chance of outright failure or getting to the site and finding there's just no way to get a body into the pad are high.Sooo many other ways to get rid of a body that make more sense.
