* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ye_Olde_Curiosity_Shop Ye Olde Curiosity Shop]] in {{Seattle}}, a cross of oddball souvenir shop, MuseumOfTheStrangeAndUnusual, and tourist trap on the waterfront has ''two'' mummified humans under glass - "Sylvester" and "Sylvia" (real names unknown). "Sylvester" died of a gunshot in Arizona back in the 1890's and "Sylvia" was likely a Spanish settler who died of tuberculosis back in the early 1800's and was mummified by the extremely cold and dry area she was laid to rest.

* In ''Tales of the Black Freighter'', a ShowWithinAShow of ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'', the Captain saw the severed heads of his two daughters hanging by their hair, and his wife's head in a pike. They were calling for him to save them. However, it was just a hallucination, they are safe and alive. However, when he does make it home (but believing he's too late to save them), [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone he almost beats his own wife to death (thinking she was a pirate), right in front of his daughters]].

They're (even more) horrified when they learn that the geth are actually [[ArtificialZombie creating Husks]].

Added DiffLines:

* On ''Series/LALaw'', Mike Kuzak handled a case where an old man with a terminal heart condition wanted to be freeze-dried and displayed in his backyard (the old man's backyard, not Mike's).
