Iowa man selling coffin gets questions about bones
COUNCIL BLUFFS (AP) — An Iowa man’s online classified ad offering an oak coffin for sale neglected to mention the full skeleton inside, so police interrupted the deal and seized the bones.
The Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil reported that the coffin belonged to the now-defunct Council Bluffs chapter of the International Order of Odd Fellows, which promotes anonymous giving to the poor.
Dave Burgstrum placed the ad on the Craigslist website to sell the coffin for $12,000 because he’s trying to raise money to pay the property taxes on the fraternal organization’s hall.
