Weird Belated Easter Story Of The Week
Papers are reporting that the body of a man with his hands and feet nailed to a wooden cross and a crown of thorns on his head has been found in an abandoned South Korean stone quarry.
The body had a wound to the side of the torso and nylon strings tied around the neck, arms and stomach, and was clad only in underpants, police said. It was found on Sunday in Mungyong, about 115 miles (190km) south-east of Seoul, said Chung Ji-chun, the provincial chief for violent crime.
Two smaller crosses were erected on each side, he added. Police found nails, a hammer, an electric drill, pieces of wood and instructions on how to build crosses inside a tent near the scene, Chung said.
This is the bit that crucified me, though – police are awaiting a forensics report to determine the cause of death and whether it was a homicide or suicide.
