Dead in roadside ‘free car’: Honest finders drive home

Bring a car for free, who doesn‘t want it? Two American men who found a car in a deserted area in Mississippi with a free car sign struck their way, but after a 40kilometer drive they made a shocking discovery. It turned out there was a corpse in the trunk.

The car was parked in the middle of nowhere near the city of Jackson. The keys were still in the ignition, reports local TV station WLBT. The dead man in the trunk has now been identified by his tattoos. It’s about 34-year-old Anthony McCrillis. He was naked at the corpse. Police carry out further autopsy and investigate whether it is a crime. The cause of death has yet to be determined.

After finding the free car, the two men drove through Mississippi state carefree, past several cities. Once home, they looked in the trunk and made the bizarre discovery. The victim would have died a few days before that time.

The honest finders lost the car again: it has been confiscated for further investigation.
