Elmer McCurdy, soldier, outlaw, corpse. McCurdy was shot dead in 1911, but that didn't stop him. In a strange turn of events his body was preserved in an arsenic based embalming solution, and his corpse was passed around, Weekend at Bernie's style for decades. He was in sideshows, museums, and was even used as a prop on the big screen until 1977 when he was finally laid to rest.
