Another would-be thief has been discovered languishing as a pile of bones, this one by an artisan brick mason. The protruding foot and leg bones found during building renovations belonged to a thief who tried to rob a Gift shop by way of the second-floor chimney fifteen years before, speculated bemused authorities. Maybe he should have tried a skeleton key.

Andy Harner says, "My son and I were in this shop last March and didn't notice
a thing. We wonder how the smell could have been missed -- after
all, it gets hot and humid in Natchez, so wouldn't you think that first
summer was a smelly one?"
