Internet Sensation 'Papa Smurf' Dies; Other Blue People Live On

Internet Sensation 'Papa Smurf' Dies; Other Blue People Live On | Strange Deaths | Scoop.it
Paul Karason Dies After Years of Taking Silver Supplements 

The most famous "blue man" -- known as "Papa Smurf" -- has died.

Paul Karason was born a fair-skinned, freckled boy with reddish blond hair. But later, he developed skin with a bluish tinge against his shock of white hair, the result of a rare medical syndrome known as argyria or silver poisoning from dietary supplements.

Karason died at the age of 62 this week after being treated for pneumonia at a Washington hospital after having suffered a heart attack. He'd also previously had a severe stroke, his estranged wife Jo Anna Karason told NBC's Today.

 

ABCNews.com interviewed Karason in 2008. At the time he lived in Oregon. He said the blue tinge had started more than a decade before that when he saw an ad in a new-age magazine promising health and rejuvenation through colloidal silver. He drank about 10 ounces a day of the home-brew that he dissolved in water.

Death in a funeral hearse

Death in a funeral hearse | Strange Deaths | Scoop.it
There’s something horribly ironic about dying in a funeral hearse. But it happens; just look at the case of Jose Agustino Noha.

 

He worked in a funeral home and romantically had a favourite hearse he used to invite his girlfriend to spend some quality time in with him. After one occasion of doing the dirty the couple fell asleep and never woke up again. They’d suffocated in their sleep after leaving the car running and carbon monoxide was leaked from the engine.

Death by toilet brush handle

Death by toilet brush handle | Strange Deaths | Scoop.it

Cindy Corton, 35, of Sleaford, Lincolnshire, had a 15cm long toilet brush handle embedded in her buttock after a drunken fall in a friend’s bathroom in 2005. She went to hospital but was sent home with painkillers despite showing medics the wound in her bottom. Four days later, she was in such pain that she went for X-rays, but nothing was found.

 

She suffered two years of constant pain before she was able to convince doctors that the thin serrated plastic handle was stuck in her arse cheek. By then it had become much more dangerous because it was embedded in her pelvis. After two unsuccessful operations in 2007, Mrs Curton agreed to undergo further surgery in June 2009, but died from massive blood loss.

 

Her husband is suing United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust. Sun online, 18 May 2010.

Sale of coffin halted after skeleton found inside

Sale of coffin halted after skeleton found inside | Strange Deaths | Scoop.it
Police have stopped the sale of a coffin on Craigslist after a skeleton was discovered inside.

 

The ad selling the oak coffin was fairly straightforward, if a bit unusual, but what it forgot to say was it came complete with the original owner.

 

Dave Burgstrum placed the ad on the Craigslist website to sell the coffin for $12,000 (£7,800) because he’s trying to raise money to pay the property taxes on his fraternal organisation’s former home.

 

The ad came to the attention of local police in Iowa and they’ve now halted the sale unless the skeleton can be identified.

 

Mr Burgstrum said the coffin was used in a ritual conducted by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, which has a long history in the city of Council Bluffs.

Girl killed by lightning minutes before marriage proposal | Strange Deaths | Scoop.it

A man was minutes from proposing to his girlfriend on a hike in Carolina Friday when she was struck and killed by lightning. “Everything went black. I was spun 180 thrown several feet back. My legs turned to jelly. My shoes were smoking and the bottom of my feet felt like they were on fire,” Richard Butler said

 

For a moment, he said he thought he was the only one hit by the bolt of lightning.

However, it was his girlfriend Bethany Lott, 25, who took the direct hit. She was hiking just a few feet in front of him.

He says they were nearly to the top of local beauty spot when the tragedy happened.

 

Friday was supposed to mark the beginning of the couple’s life together. Butler had a ring and was planning to propose....
