Funeral home steps in to stop the "grim eater"


Thu Jun 3, 12:38 pm ET
WELLINGTON (Reuters) –



A New Zealand funeral home has stepped in to stop a fake mourner who was attending
up to four funerals a week to stock up on food, even filling up tupperware containers
to take home, according to media reports.

Funeral Home director Danny Langstraat told that the "grim eater" appeared at up to four funerals
a week in March and April to enjoy the finger food but clearly did not know the deceased.

The funeral company grew so concerned that it took a photograph of the man,
thought to be aged in his 40s, and distributed the picture to its branches.

"Certainly he had a backpack with some tupperware containers so when people weren't looking,
he was stocking up," Langstraat told the newspaper.

He said the man was "always very quiet and polite, and did as the rest of the mourners did in paying
his respects."

Langstraat said the man stopped coming after one staff member took him aside and told him he
could come to funerals but could not take food home with him.

Funeral Directors Association president Tony Garing told the newspaper that such cases happened
in the industry occasionally but it was difficult to stop people from coming or call their behavior theft
because funerals were usually public events.

That may be one of the strangest stories I've ever read.

I can see not letting him fill his back pack but for petes sake let the guy eat. He clearly must be hungry to do what he's doing and as long as he is quiet and polite whats the harm.

Maybe give the guy some odd jobs to do like cleaning up or cutting the grass to earn his meals.

OK.....I know.....I'm a softie.
