It's like a horror movie come to life: a skeleton previously thought to be fakes in the London Dungeon has turned out to be actually real. Yeah, it gives us chills too.
Apparently the staff at the Dungeon had suspicions that the skeleton was real for a long time, and now they must decide what to do with the remains. Bury them? Pay for an annual license from the Human Tissues Authority? Yes, that does exist.
This discovery was found by medical museum curator Bill Edwards, who thinks the rib-cage and the backbone may have been fused together.
Nobody knows where the skeleton came from, but operations manager Catherine Pritchard said it could have belonged to a smuggled body from the Middle East dating back to the 1950s when early anatomists were exploring dissection. The poor skeleton even had a nickname: "Kate". Named after the equally svelte supermodel.
BUT Kate isn't the only skeleton with a troubled past: the Dungeon believes that another caged skeleton by the name of "Twiggy" may also be real. Both of them belonged to the "Creepy Crypt" exhibit. If the Human Tissues Authority license wasn't so outrageously priced, the skeletons would make a fitting pair, don't you think?
Nothing has been confirmed yet, but Edward thinks the skeleton is at least HALF human. Because that makes it much less creepy.
What do you think the London Dungeon should do with the skeletal pair? Should they receive a dignified burial like everyone else, or remain where they are for history's sake?
