American culture loves celebrity. Magazines and television shows follow the lives of celebrities like an ongoing mini-series -- until they die. That’s when we typically set down one tale and start another. But the story doesn’t always end there. Some famous corpses had very curious fates. Seattle writer Bess Lovejoy is author of "Rest in Pieces: The Curious Fates of Famous Corpses." She joins us.
