Woman mummified husband for 'resurrection'


A Russian woman kept her husband's mummified headless body for three years, believing he will return to life one day as a miracle.

Police respond to report of woman shot.....oops Happy Halloween


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Police were called to what looked like a woman shot dead in her car but found a Halloween reveler they described as drunk and passed out in a bloody-looking zombie costume.

Police say officers roused the woman and removed her from the vehicle. Authorities say she was handcuffed and taken to the city jail on a driving under the influence of alcohol charge.

A photo of the woman by al.com showed fake blood covering much of her torso as she was apprehended.
