THE BAG OF BONES

IT WAS SAID THAT A TAXI CAB DRIVER PICKED UP A PASSENGER OPPOSITE A
CHURCH. THE PASSENGER ASKED TO BE DRIVEN TO A HOTEL IN THE DOWNTOWN
AREA. ON THE WAY TO THE HOTEL THE TAXI CAB DRIVER TOOK A ROUTE THAT
PASSED BY A CEMETERY. ON APPROACHING THE CEMETERY, THE PASSENGER
ASKED THE DRIVER TO STOP FOR A FEW MINUTES SO THAT HE COULD SAY HELLO
TO A FRIEND WHO LIVED NEARBY. THE DRIVER DID AS HE WAS ASKED TO DO.
THE DRIVER SAID THAT HE STOPPED THE CAR IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE
OPPOSITE THE CEMETERY. HE TURNED TO ASK THE PASSENGER A QUESTION,
BUT THERE WAS NO ONE THERE, ONLY A LADY'S HANDBAG AND A PILLOWCASE.
THE PILLOWCASE WAS FOUND TO CONTAIN BONES OF A HUMAN SKELETON.
THE DRIVER SAID THAT THE CAR DOOR NEVER OPEND. THE POLICE FOUND
NO FINGERPRINTS ON THE CAR DOOR OR SEAT OR THE OBJECTS FOUND IN THE
CAR.
