    Woman takes decomposing corpse on road trip

    Authorities in two states are trying to determine why a woman may have driven with her mother's decaying body as a passenger from their Oklahoma home to Florida_ by way of North Carolina and Texas_ and then left the body in the car in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

    Flagler County sheriff's deputies found Melba Doshier's body Tuesday in the car parked at a Wal-Mart in Palm Coast after shoppers reported a bad smell coming from the vehicle.

    The St. Johns County medical examiner on Wednesday said she died of natural causes at least five days before she was found.

    Doshier's daughter Alicia, who officials said is in her mid-30s, has been questioned and hospitalized for psychiatric observation.

    She was found in the store Tuesday, 13 hours after security cameras spotted her parking the car and entering the store at about midnight Monday.

    Sheriff James Manfre said he wasn't planning to file charges.

    "This is as strange and as bizarre a case as I've seen," Manfre told The Daytona Beach News-Journal.

    However, one of my favorite movies is "Weekend at Bernies" so I am kinda like trying not to laugh.

    Carpool lane? Enough. I must go.

    LOL.. this has been my theory about the Pope for a while now... two bishops are always moving him around and holding him up to the microphone and his lips don't move when he speaks

    That is so sad! I've heard about people living with corpses. They just can't let them go.
