** Especially in Custom Games, where people have put human torsos over keys in dresser drawers. YMMV, as some levels can be beaten by actually throwing these parts at enemies so they chase them, letting you hide.

Corpses can be found in the darnedest places, in fiction. While every PoliceProcedural or mystery series uses the routine body-dump sites of alleys, roadsides, dumpsters, harbor bottoms or vacant lots, writers often feel the need to spice up their selection of crime scenes and corpse-disposal methods. When the placement of the corpse becomes ''so'' bizarre that its strange location becomes an element of the mystery's plot -- not just Whodunnit, but How/Why'ddeydoit''there'' -- then it's a Body In A Breadbox. [[Film/EightHeadsInADuffelBag Or duffel bag.]] [[StuffedIntoTheFridge Or refrigerator.]] [[CeilingCorpse Or the ceiling.]] Or whatever.

For a body somehow stuck to the ceiling, see CeilingCorpse. Sister trope to DeadMansChest, which deals with the mechanics of ''fitting'' a body into a confined space. See StuffedIntoTheFridge for a more chilly version of this trope. Often overlaps with PeekABooCorpse. WaxMuseumMorgue is a subtrope.

* In the Creator/HowardChaykin ''Radio/TheShadow'' comic book series, a body is stuffed into the bottle of a office water cooler in the first issue. How this was accomplished is never explained--or even referred to again, as the perpetrator is known, and is pursued for his master plan.
