Authorities exhumed a tall man's body yesterday to determine if, in fact, a North Carolina funeral home cut the legs off a corpse.
It's something like "trying to fit a square peg into a round hole," but not exactly.
A South Carolina funeral home had a similar challege when a very tall man died and wouldn't fit into a coffin.
So the morticians decided to cut off the corpse's legs, apparently.
On Tuesday, authorities exhumed the body of the tall guy, James Hines, to examine that claim.
The funeral home is expect to defend itself, but ... they don't have a leg to stand on, it seems.
