ghost bride

by theuglyearring

Farmer Yang Dongyan bought a woman for $1,600 with the intention of selling her as a live bride. But then he discovered that the woman could command $2,077 as a “ghost bride” to be buried alongside a deceased man and provide companionship in the afterlife. So he “killed the woman in a ditch, bagged her body, and sold her” to an undertaker…”If I had not been caught this early, I would’ve done it again.”
