    As U.S. officials defended the decision to kill Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani in Baghdad, Iranian leaders have stepped up calls for revenge against the United States on Tuesday. The calls for retaliation came as Iranian authorities prepared to bury Soleimani in his hometown in Kerman, a city in the southeast of the country. Early on Tuesday authorities had been forced to halt the burial proceedings after a deadly stampede killed scores. Here’s what we know so far: ● Iranian state news agencies reported that at least 50 people died and more than 200 were injured in a stampede during funeral...

    Scientists at a human body farm watched a dead body dance while it decomposed. For 17 months. Scientists in Australia have allegedly captured video evidence of post-mortem movement in a decomposing body. Researchers suggest in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation that contracting ligaments may be responsible for the arm movement. Body donation facilities—or body farms—provide forensic scientists with an unrivaled opportunity to study the decomposition of human remains in natural environments. ======================================================= Our bodies undergo strange changes after we die. But this may be the strangest: Scientists say they've captured footage of a decomposing body moving in its...

    It was a partnership Planned Parenthood’s former president once bragged she was “proud” of. “Proud,” apparently, of cutting into tiny baby bodies when their hearts are still beating. “Proud,” it turns out, of putting women through riskier abortion procedures to get better, more valuable baby organs. And “proud,” most of all, that her medical directors were negotiating higher prices for the little livers, limbs, and brains her business was harvesting. Four years later, pride is the last thing anyone felt at the courtroom where the gory details of Planned Parenthood’s baby butcher ring came tumbling out. While the country’s abortion...

    A man’s body was found early Monday in the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck, authorities said. Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s West Hollywood station responded to the Laurel Avenue apartment complex at 1:05 a.m. in response to a report of a person not breathing, the department said in a statement. At some point, the 911 caller performed CPR, the department said. Paramedics pronounced a man dead at the scene. The cause of death was not yet known. The dead man’s name has not been released, but Nicole Nishida, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s...

    Investigators searching for Mollie Tibbetts in Iowa have discovered the body of a young white woman in her 20s, but they do not believe it to be the missing college student, whose whereabouts remain a mystery more than two weeks after she vanished. The unidentified woman’s remains were found in Lee County, about 100 miles southeast of Brooklyn, where Tibbetts was last seen jogging on July 18. The Iowa Department of Public Safety, however, said they have no reason to believe the body is that of Tibbetts. Officials have vetted more than 200 anonymous tips and have searched numerous areas...

    Forensic scientists studying human decomposition spotted an unexpected animal chewing on the remains. Its attention caught, a deer found eating a human corpse looks up, a rib dangling from its mouth. Photograph courtesy Lauren A. Meckel/Academia ================================================================================================================================ In an unprecedented finding, researchers spotted a deer chewing on a human rib during a study aimed at examining how human remains decompose in the wild. Scavengers take advantage of opportunities to eat, and carcasses left in the wild often decay quickly because animals can make quick work of the remains–even human remains. Known as “body farms,” some research facilities study how human...

It seems that on the eve of the inauguration—January, 20—he will have nothing else left to do for himself but to break all the windows in the White House and to leave behind a pile [of shit] on the steps.”

    The woman who sold the freezer told her neighbor not to open it because a Sunday school class was using it as a time capsule. The truth wasn’t nearly so innocent. The woman, who asked not to be identified, told WNCN that she opened the freezer Friday, three weeks after getting it, because no one from the church came by. “A church was supposed to come, pick up the items inside the freezer. I was supposed to get the freezer back,” she said. “The church never came. I decided to open it.” Instead of a time capsule, the Goldsboro, North...

Ms Esparza's severely decayed body was discovered in the tank after residents in the building complained that the drinking water tasted funny.

    The new owner of a foreclosed home in Cape Coral got more than he bargained when he went to inspect his purchase. William Wilson bought the light pink house on SE 19th Lane for $96,000 at an auction on Tuesday, according to the News-Press of Fort Myers. When he went to mow the lawn and check out the house itself on Wednesday, he found a corpse on the master bedroom floor. Wilson told the paper all that remained was the bones, skin and smell of the remains. Wilson said the inside of the house was a mess and it looked...

    A Florida appeals court judge has ruled that an insurer is not liable for damages that occurred to an apartment after a neighbor's dead body 'exploded.' Judy Rodrigo battled State Farm for almost six years, arguing that the insurer of her Jupiter condo should pay for the clean-up of her apartment. She argued that the Keystone Condominium Association left the neighbor's corpse so long that the body's fluid leaked into her apartment.

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - A woman from west Knoxville found a body under her deck while hunting for Easter eggs with her son Wednesday. The Knoxville News Sentinel reports Tara Hanouskova smelled an odor that progressively got worse over the past week, but could never pinpoint the source. On Wednesday, however, while hunting for Easter eggs with her three-year-old, she noticed something with a pair of feet clad in tennis shoes in the crawl space under her deck. She explained that the odor wasn't consistent nor strong; she only smelled it off and on until it got so bad she decided...

    Decomposed Chavez body may be too dead to go on eternal display After Hugo Chavez's death last week, government officials revealed that the late Venezuelan leader's body would be embalmed and displayed "for eternity." Just like Han Solo, but with less chance of him waking up again. However, the grisly plans may now not happen at all. According to Russian and German scientists who are experts in the field of embalming (what a job), his body is now a bit too gross and decomposed. "They tell us it’s very difficult because the process should have started earlier," said acting President...
