Abstract:
When Giuseppe Camiola, a young Italian carnival worker was killed in a fight, the nearest funeral home was the J. W. MacDougal one in Laurinburg. MacDougal did a fine job of embalming and then waited for the deceased's family or someone to pay for the work. No one claimed the body, and as it was taking up space, MacDougal hung it on the wall. Twenty-three years later the deceased still hangs on the wall, and thousands of people come by every year to look at it.
