You have to kinda of wonder who would buy this for $87,000 + and why?

Wow, I don't know about this. I mean, how morbid, yet at the same time, how cool. Even if I were rich, I don't think I'd buy it, but it would be interesting to see. If the Oswald family purchased it for the funeral, then don't they technically still own it?

Just because you bury someone in something, doesn't mean you give up your ownership rights.

Never, EVER thought that would be a sentence I would write.

I would think so
Guess it will now be up to the courts to decide.
