Dead Man Rolling

In New York two men wheeled a dead man through the streets in an office chair to a check cashing store to cash his Social Security check .
David J. Dalaia and James O'Hare pushed Virgilio Cintron's body from their Manhattan apartment to Pay-O-Matic about a block away.

Cintron kept flopping from side to side so they had to keep propping him up, they were stopped by a friend of Cintron but fooled him by making Cintron's head nod and made his arm wave.

The men left Cintron's body outside the store, went inside to cash his $355 cheque, the main reason they were able to fool people was because they had put a pair of dark glasses onto Cintron and doused him in beer so people would assume he was drunk, a sign of criminal genius perhaps?

Actually the dark glasses were because Cintron's Chihuahua had feasted on the dead man's eyes the night before and the smell of beer was an accidental spill while celebrating their good luck at finding the cheque.

Both Dalaia and O'Hare have been arrested on fraud charges, police said.
