Man tries to sell coffin with skeleton


A US man has attempted to sell a coffin with a skeleton inside.

Dave Burgstrum put the antique item on Craiglist for $12 000 (R120 000) in an attempt to raise some money, but the bizarre listing was seized by police after it was deemed illegal to sell a body.

However Dave insists he doesn't know how the bones came to be inside the coffin, which dates back to the 1900s.

He said, "They were just there as long as anyone could remember."
