Pennsylvania mummy Stoneman Willie buried after 128 years

Dressed in a suit with a bow tie, the gaunt man is displayed in a coffin with a red sash across his chest. His hair and teeth remain intact and his skin has taken on a leathery appearance. Because the man gave a fake name when he was arrested for picking pockets, stone Man Willie's identity was unknown for many years and local officials were unable to locate relatives. The funeral home petitioned the state for permission to keep the body instead of burying it to monitor the experimental embalming process

We should give him the respect that he can now rest and that he's not used as a science experiment. I mean, he didn't agree to that. On the other hand though, it's good, but also at the same time it's bad. I have conflicting feelings about it
