    NY - Pair wheels dead man to store to cash his Social Security check

    Just when you think you've heard it all....

    Two men wheeled a dead man through the streets in an office chair to a check-cashing store Tuesday and tried to cash his Social Security check before being arrested on fraud charges, police said.

    David J. Dalaia and James O'Hare pushed Virgilio Cintron's body from the Manhattan apartment that O'Hare and Cintron shared to Pay-O-Matic, about a block away, spokesman Paul Browne said witnesses told police.

    Maybe it was really close to check time, and the man really needed his share of the rent. Hopefully no foul play was involved other than trying to cash the check.

    Cintron's body was taken to a hospital morgue. The medical examiner's office told police it appeared Cintron, 66, had died of natural causes within the previous 24 hours, Browne said.

    This is one funky story, and I hope the ME's office is thorough in ruling out foul play. Geesh, I don't even have words to express how weird this seems to me.

    Glad these two bozos didn't have a hand in his death - only his pocket.

    Honest to goodness sadly this doesn't shock me. What I don't see going on when it's "check day". All kinds of leeches and hangers-on about carrying Seniors to the bank on SS day. Haven't seen a deceased one yet though. Thank goodness.

    God--I didn't realize until I saw the picture of the check cashing place--this is right around the corner! Cue Mr. Rogers, "These are the people in my neighborhood; in my neighborhood; in my neigh-bor-hooood!"

    They need to be removed from the gene pool as quickly as possible - sterilize them.

    O.M.G... LoL I swear this scenario is something you would find on that crazy Reno 911 show... not in real life. LoL As a matter of fact, on that show they did prop up an old dead man in a chair so the blonde cop could marry him and be his widow, before he was officially pronounced dead. LoL
