How low can you go? Robbing a dead man is right down there

Posted By on Tue, Sep 25, 2012 at 11:51 AM

Channel 11 has an early contender for lowlifes of the day honors:

Authorities in White County have two people in custody for theft and abuse of a corpse.

Authorities say Efron Belfred shot and killed himself inside his truck just outside Judsonia Sept. 22. Authorities say Austin Flynn, 22, and Michael Hollingshead, 43, removed Belfred's body from inside the truck onto the dirt road and stole his truck and the gun he used to kill himself.

Speaking of taking advantage of the dead and dying:

Here's a story from Memphis about a Republican candidate for state Senate who reputedly tore up a dying widow's last will as she lay unconscious. Can you believe that a Republican lawyer, an officer of the court from the Family Values Party, would act dishonorably so that an estate wouldn't go to its intended beneficiaries?
