THE body of a Louisiana man who vanished 27 years ago have been found lodged inside a bank's chimney.

Staff stumbled across Joseph Schexnider's corpse as they carried out renovation work. He went missing in January 1984 ahead of a court appearance for possessing a stolen vehicle, KATC-TV reported today.

Police investigating the grim find in Abbeville, west of New Orleans, have ruled out foul play.

They say Schexnider probably died from dehydration and starvation after climbing into the Bank of Abbeville's chimney and becoming trapped.

But why he was there remains something of a mystery.

Let's see ... I need some crackers ... blue cheese ... and gimme a pound of smoked burglar. I'm having some cannibals over and need to cater to their tastes.
:devil:

My god! How that ghost makes me dread
My attempts to sleep at night, in my bed
All that moaning and groaning
Keep me awake until morning
Oh wait --- it's that couple next door, newly wed!
