    Until police confiscated Baby John last year, the mummy had been on display on a bureau in Peavey's home. Relatives and friends treated the desiccated infant as a family member, giving it cards during holidays and even a dried fish as a pet.
    Oh yeah.. that's normal.

    I guess it could be worse, at least she didn't bring it for show-and-tell..

    In the same article it says, "there was no weirdness going on." and that they gave the dried baby a dried fish as a pet. Nope, nothing weird about that.

    Not long ago they found a mumified baby in the attic of a home in Toronto and I believe it was treated as a crime scene (wrapped in a newspaper from the 60's).

    My guess would be that the Toronto one appeared to be hidden as if covering up something....where as the more recent one was out there for all the world to see...but either way....not cool.

    Marcus.

    You need lessons in caring and sharing the polite way.

    It is obvious they are Peavied off at the decision and should be allowed to grieve for mummy dearest in their own way.

    A family must preserve its memories, why not its members?

    At least the wee baby never ended up in a stew with the rest of the family.

    Yabbut, how did the baby come to be dead? It had to be alive at some point. So, it died and they dried it and kept it. Ewwwwwww....

    Well, according the report this one was a still born and they managed to get it home......By no means am I defending or approving of any of these actions....either way it just plain sick and wrong.

    Except for the baby back ribs post....that is funny as heck!!

    Default Yup, weirder....

    Man finds human leg in smoker
    Purchase at auction results in macabre discovery
    The Associated Press

    Updated: 12:08 a.m. ET Sept 26, 2007

    MAIDEN, N.C. - A man who bought a smoker Tuesday at an auction of abandoned items might have thought twice had he looked inside first.

    Maiden police said the man opened up the smoker and saw what he thought was a piece of driftwood wrapped in paper. When he unwrapped it, he found a human leg, cut off 2 to 3 inches above the knee.

    The smoker had been sold at an auction of items left behind at a storage facility, so investigators contacted the mother and son who had rented the space where the smoker was found.

    The mother, Peg Steele, explained her son had his leg amputated after a plane crash and kept the leg following the surgery “for religious reasons” she doesn’t know much about.

    “The rest of the family was very much against it,” Steele said.

    Steele said her son, John Wood, plans to drive to Maiden, about 35 miles northwest of Charlotte, to reclaim his amputated leg, police said.
