As promised, Swamplot’s original tipster sends in photos of the freelance coffin first spotted last night at the College Memorial Park Cemetery on West Dallas St. in North Montrose, a couple blocks northeast of the River Oaks Shopping Center. It’s likely been some time since this cemetery has seen a new burial. And yet — hello there! These photos are from this morning:
The fresh arrival “looks like it’s been dumped on top of some of the yard-work leavings — grass, leaves, and extra dirt from Saturday activities (the cemetery is a permanent worksite for juvenile offenders through Harris County),” writes our informant. Is this coffin “real”? Our tipster’s spouse doesn’t think so . . . “but I’m too afraid to get closer to it. If it’s fake, some charming wag is scaring the kwap out of me.”
