LMAO reminds me of something a second cousin related to me, apparently in some rural towns in Mexico they do not have fancy embalming facilities, when
they have a Velorio (Wake) the body is usually in someone's house or the small church, people usually attend them at night and pray till morning;
this time it was in a house, they set up chairs and benches for the people to mourn and pray for deceased.... picture the stereotypical small Mexican
town house from the old westerns, the room for the velorio is only lit by candles and very grim looking.
Well since no embalming procedures were taken; as some people were in the place praying, the body suddenly sat up and flailed it's arms about and
started roaring growling and gurgling causing everyone to panic and run for their lives. After the scare wore down, some people realized that the
abdominal and back muscles and the thoracic diaphragm must have contracted, lifting the body to sit up and pressed the air out of the lungs and some
fluids to come out.
With that I am thinking it was more likely a similar case with this individual with the strange items in the carrying case lol
