Pair accused of trying to use corpse to cash check





?NEW YORK (AP) — Two men wheeled a dead man through the streets in an office chair to a check-cashing store 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.

"The witnesses saw the two pushing the chair with Cintron flopping from side to side and the two individuals propping him up and keeping him from flopping from side to side," Browne said.

The men left Cintron's body outside the store, went inside and tried to cash his $355 check, Browne said. The store's clerk, who knew Cintron, asked the men where he was, and O'Hare told the clerk they would go and get him, Browne said.

A police detective who was having lunch at a restaurant next to the check-cashing store noticed a crowd forming around Cintron's body, and "it's immediately apparent to him that Cintron is dead," Browne said.

Now that's getting desperate.

Reminds me of that movie. I forget the name. Where they wheel that poor dead guy around with his sunglasses still on.

OMG! Too bizarre!
There was a very funny movie many years ago. Anyone recall the name? A man in a used car dealership dies and they need to keep him looking alive. I just remember Jack Warden (I love him!) was in it.

To be frank, if these were 2 older men trying to make it on soc sec, I don't blame them. After all, the government is just going to throw it away on something stupid or wasteful anyway.
