Italian prosecutors suspect that pizza shops and restaurants in Naples are firing their ovens with with wood from dug-up coffins in order to cut down on costs.

According to Italian newspaper Il Giornale, “a gang might have set up a market for coffins sold to hard-hearted owners of bakeries and pizzerias looking to save money on wood.”

The investigation is currently ongoing and prosecutors are still building their case, but if you’d like a taste of cannibalism without directly consuming human flesh, head over to Naples today!

Death rewards can be dependant on an amount of different ways at the discretion of the employee: from a minimum coverage of group term insurance to a permanent benefit up to and including pre-determined many of the employee’s reported W-2 http://www.answers.com/topic/section-79-plan revenue. The tax consequences and funding responsibility to the staff can be relying on the alternative they choose within the program. In the event of a worker doing $245,000, if a 10x multiple is employed that employee will receive a death benefit add up to $2,450,000 ($245,000 x 10). The resulting factor depends greatly about what product is being used for financing as well as the employee’s age and health.
