Alas, Poor Yorick!

Witnesses in Sebastian, Fla., say a “homeless man” walked to a supermarket carrying something bizarre: a human head. He was talking to it, said Nick Pecoraro. “He was using like a puppet.” At first Pecoraro thought it was fake, but “it smelled like death” so he called 911. The man propped the rotting head atop a trashcan, and when police arrived he led them to where he found it. Investigators say the body wasn’t decapitated, it just was decomposed enough to start falling apart. They are trying to figure who the person was. (RC/WPBF West Palm Beach) ...A fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy.
