Here’s a pretty gross story for you. A skeleton that makes up part of the many macabre displays in London Dungeons has turn out to be the real remains of a person that could have been there since the attraction first opened in 1975.
Recent tests performed on the supposed model skeleton, backbone and rib cage have revealed the remains to be genuine.
The skeleton had been named Kate, after the waif-like Kate Moss and now that Kate has been discovered as real further tests will be done on another skeleton, called Twiggy as this one also is reported to look suspiciously realistic.
Londonist reports ‘… the skeleton was sent for testing only after staff learned that displaying a real skeleton requires a £2000 license from the Human Tissues Authority, a institution that sounds straight out of a David Cronenberg movie. It also helps that the Dungeon has a new attraction to announce — the skeletons were set to appear in December’s Satan’s Grotto display.’
