 COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - For sale: One casket. But Dave Burgstrum's Craigslist online ad didn't mention there was a full skeleton inside. Police in Council Bluffs, Iowa, stepped in and seized the bones. Burgstrum says the coffin belonged to the now-defunct local chapter of the International Order of Odd Fellows. Burgstrum says the coffin was made in the 1900s and had been used in the group's rituals. Burgstrum wanted $12,000 for the coffin, so he could pay the property taxes on the Odd Fellows hall. A local paper (Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil) reports the bones have been turned over to the state medical examiner for possible identification. Burgstrum says authorities can keep the skeleton, he just wants to sell the coffin.
