A Friday Morning Freak-Out List: 3 Horribly Weird Ways to Die

Admit it, we all have a morbid fascination with freak accidents or strange manner of death. Afterall, death is inevitable. The best we all can hope for is to go in a way that doesn't require dental records for i.d.
Here's 3 stories that have popped up on the innernetubes within hours of each other. Ranked from tragically odd to downright "!"

SOUTHAMPTON, Va. — A Virginia man was found dead and buried under a large pile of peanuts in a warehouse at the Severn Peanut Company where he worked.

Calvin W. Branch's co-workers reported him missing around noon on Tuesday and two hours later authorities found him dead in a warehouse where the peanuts are funneled into loose piles and then later pumped out into trucks, according to a report in the Daily Press.

Southampton County Sheriff's Detective Richard Morris told the Daily Press there was no indication of foul play, but don't know how the 42-year-old ended up there.

NORTHVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The Detroit News and Free Press are reporting that a burned and beheaded body found by a utility crew is that of a convicted sex offender.

A single fingerprint from the victim's burned hand has allowed Michigan State Police to identify him as 26-year-old Daniel Gene-Vincent Sorensen.

The print reveals that Sorensen had been a registered sex offender in Illinois.

Northville Township sewer and water department crews found the body at the end of a cul-de-sac about 20 miles northwest of Detroit about 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

Sorensen's head has not been found.
Ok, that's pretty horrible and grim, but for me, here's the money line:
A cause of death has not been determined.
You gotta be kiddin' me!
Moral of the story: If you're a kid-diddler, stay out of Detroit!

And finally, the best for last. (well, alright maybe that's a poor turn of phrase!)
Let's just say that this one wins, hands down. This sounds like it's straight from a Tarantino flick.
Un-friggin'-believeable! The stuff of nitemares.
If you have a vivid imagination, please stop (don't say I didn't warn ya.)

PONTIAC - Livingston County authorities are investigating a gruesome and bizarre death today.

A bystander in a parking lot in the 1000 block of West Reynolds Street called 911 about 4:30 a.m. today to report a tow truck driving erratically across two parking lots before it hit a sign and continued across a road into a ditch.

When police arrived and inspected the vehicle, they found a decapitated body inside. They then found a human head in the parking lot where the caller first noticed the truck.
