      I have no idea...looks like decomp because there is no "mark" on the seat where the body would have been. SO it looks like he/she was a mushy, slimy mess.

      Looks like broken glass on the dash and both driver/passenger front windows are missing. Maybe murder.

      I am sure IAA has it listed as bio hazard and it would show up with a quick search.

      Damage Report
      Accident reported
      Vehicle damaged in multiple places
      Disabling damage reported
      Vehicle towed
      Airbags did not deploy


      Someone is going to end up buying that car and have no idea. Ew.

      This may sound callous, but at that point its just another situation of bio cleanup. To me unless I knew the person, I would treat it the same if it was a person or animal.

      Would I want to do the cleanup? hell no, but there are a lot of jobs I wouldnt want to do. But if I had to, I would just wear a plastic suit, heavy gloves, good mask and respirator, ipod to take my mind off it, and tape my nose. I figure I would wet down the offending ares as much as possible with a sanitizing solution then go at it with a wet dry vac before getting into more detailed cleaning and seat removal, etc.

      If a body was in a car in the florida sun, with all the windows up, would the abdominal area explode from the gases in the body ? Cause that stuff looks like the guy swallowed a grenade. Maybe the windows were broken by the authorities to let the stink out a little before they pulled the body out.

      The owner didn't want the guy to remove any of the interior during the cleanup? What a retard. That car is probably still full of mold.

    30. 04-12-2012 10:33 AM #31
      Looks like someone got their head blown off getting into the car.

      Im a bit confused though. They both have the same VIN number but the IAA listing looks like it's an upcoming auction (04/17/12).

      The owner is probably going to sell it/ trade it in very soon anyway.
