Dead Man Wheeled to Check Cashing Store
Morning Edition, January 9, 2008 ·
A man named Virgilio Cintron died of natural causes in New York. And
that left his roommate staring at Cintron's Social Security check.
Police say the roommate wanted to cash that check. So with an
accomplice, he allegedly hoisted the dead man on an office chair. They
wheeled him through the streets to a check-cashing business. Police
stopped them just as they were about to roll in the body for a creative
conversation with the cashier.
