From The Mirror:
10. After dying of a drug overdose, country rock pioneer Gram Parsonsâ€™ body disappeared from the Los Angeles International Airport.
Maintaining his alleged promise, Parsonsâ€™ road manager Phil Kaufman and a friend managed to steal the starâ€™s body from the airport and, in a borrowed hearse, drove Parsons’ body to Joshua Tree national park in California where he attempted to cremate it.
The pair were arrested several days later but got away with a $700 fine for burning the coffin, as stealing a body was not recognised as a crime in the state.
