Dead man found in “Beer Cave”

Dave Cohen Reporting

Kenner Police say a man died inside a beer cooler at a convenient store on Airline Drive overnight, but no one knew he was there until they found his very cold body this morning.

“We have a gentleman that went into the Beer Cave, where you can go in and select beer from inside the cooler.  It appears that he had experienced some type of medical problem,” Sgt. Brian McGregor told WWL First News.

McGregor says surveillance video shows the man clutching his chest in the cooler around 10:30pm last night and then collapsing.  They found him after 7:00am.

The coroner is conducting an autopsy, but police do not suspect any foul play.

    What a way to go! Well, except for not getting to drink all the beer for free…

    BTW, Menderwoman has picked out my rest home. It’s up in Goldsboro. All that seperates it from the huge Budweiser plant is a fence and some dirt. She says she will get a room with a view, a couple of spoons for digging, and a map with directions for the tunnel!

    Now that is what you call true love!

    @ Moxie Man – Ironic his wife was named, “Happy.”

    “Rockefeller’s wife, HAPPY, wasn’t too happy when the old lecher was caught in the act so she had him burned to a crisp—cremated—before you could say ‘Rockefeller for President.’”
