"Russia probes 'selfie with dead' online community"

"Moscow (AFP) - Russia is investigating an online community that urges members to post selfies with dead people and even offers cash prizes for the best shot, police told AFP on Monday.

"A police spokesman in the northern city of Syktyvkar told AFP they have opened an investigation into a community called 'Selfie with the Deceased' on popular Russian social networking site VK.

"The community's administrators pledge to pay between 1,000 and 5,000 rubles ($15-$76) for the best selfie with a corpse. They say the selfie-taker should be smiling because the deceased 'has gone to a better place.'

"The community's page is filled with photographs of people posing alongside dead bodies at funeral homes."

Humans are crazy.
