Why in the world would an 81 year old man do this???
Sometimes "news" is stranger than fiction.

"Dead Man's Dangling Legs Greet Couple"
Fri Jan 2,10:37 AM ET Add Oddly Enough - Reuters to My Yahoo!

SANTA FE, N.M. (Reuters) - A New Mexico couple returned home from a week-long vacation to find the legs of a dead man dangling from their ceiling, police said.

The man was identified as Carl Smith, 81, and he was the former husband of the woman who lived in the home, said Trish Ahrensfield, a spokeswoman for the Albuquerque police.

"He was stuck in an air conditioner duct," Ahrensfield said, adding a cause of death has not yet been determined.

Police said it appears the man was trying to break into the home from the roof and died while attempting to get in through the air conditioner duct.

The couple, who were not identified, said their home was cold when they returned on Tuesday and they went to the bathroom to see if the heater had been shut off. When they looked up, they saw the legs hanging from the ceiling.

I can't help but wonder what that 81 year old's plan was.
What in the world was on his mind?
He had to die a slow agonizing death!
The home owners were gone for a week.
