Man Drives 6000+ Miles With Wife's Corpse
TONASKET, Okanogan County — An elderly Canadian man drove more than 6,000 miles with the dead body of his 75 year-old wife seated next to him in the car. The situation was discovered when the man called authorities to ask whether or not he could cross the Canadian border with his wife's corpse. The Canadian couple were vacationing in the U.S. when the man's wife bought the farm whilst sitting next to her husband in the car. He was uncertain how to proceed and just kept driving while he pondered his options. Meanwhile, the body of his dead wife decomposed.
No foul play was suspected. However, there is a ton of paperwork that must be completed.
