Oh my God he's gone?

Whenever the TV writers strike ends, they'll be working this one into an episode of Law & Order or CSI: NY.
NEW YORK - Detective Travis Rapp has seen his share of corpses, but this was new: two men wheeling a rigid, pale body down a Manhattan street in a red office chair, drawing a crowd of suspicious onlookers.

Looking out the window of the restaurant where he was having lunch, Rapp initially assumed "it was a mannequin or a dummy," he said. "I thought it was a joke, honestly."

A closer inspection showed that it wasn't. The man was dead, and two of his friends had hauled his corpse to a store to cash his $355 Social Security check, police said. They were arrested before they could get the money.
These guys were such losers, it never occurred to them that with a bit of planning they might have come close to success. But when were they going to get rid of the body?
