"Anne Semenovich, 71, faces charges of first-degree murder and interfering with human remains."
^ "Interfering with Human Remains" ~ I never understood that damn law. If a dead body started to move and come at me and I push it away or knock it down.... that would be interfering with human remains or defense from a Zombie. To me a body is just a collection of compost after you die..... but regardless of whatever that is supposed to mean and who thought it up, let's move on:
"Police didn't confirm the identity of the body, only saying it was a male and that it wasn't burned."
*snickers* is that why they called the service guy? "Hey there, we're trying to burn our grandpa but the machine isn't working, can you send someone over right away?"
"Shortly before noon on Tuesday, a service worker called by Laurie had gone out to do repairs on an incinerator on the property at Township Road 514 (Woodbend Road) and Range Road 265, 14 km southwest of Edmonton. When he opened up the incinerator, he made the grisly discovery and immediately called 911."
HA HA HA HA HA....... Yup.... Oh my, the stupidity of some people.....
So there's also speculation that he was shot a few days earlier it continues to read, so I would guess it'll certainly be a murder conviction once this is all done.
See the thing that got me at the start was the interfering with human remains thing..... I know some people when they die they want certain things done, like burn rather then be burried, or be deep sixed into the ocean, etc.
^ Myself, I want to be randomly catapulted into the forest and let nature take its course on me. My house burned down around me when I was a wee lad, so burning isn't all that appealing and having most of my gutz and such ripped out of my body and filled with chemicals so I look and smell pretty and then burried into the ground for the worms doesn't sound all that great either..... slower decomposition.
How would my want of being catapulted into the forest conflict with interfering with human remains?
I figured at the start this was the case where the old guy just wanted to end things cheaply and effectively, but it sounds like they had it out for him, so that of course changes the situation.
