Night of the Floating Dead

In an attempt to save the town of Cairo, Illinois due to massive flooding, the Army Corps of Engineers opened the levee at Birds Point in Mississippi County, Missouri, Monday night.

As a result, several local cemeteries and grave sites are now totally flooded. 

The county coroner has advised the public to be on the lookout for burial vaults, caskets or skeletal remains. Trés fab! 

Anyone who sees the floating dead should not take matters into their own hands; they're advised to call the coroner's office at McMikle Funeral Home: 573-683-3773.
