Mystery Of A Corpse Becoming A Wax Figure

A few years ago, a collector in Paris bought a lifelike wax figure from the market. However, when he took the wax figure home to appreciate it, he discovered that the wax figure turned out to be a corpse. What kind of person was this corpse in life? How did he (she) become a wax statue? Was he framed by bad guys? After careful investigation and careful inference, Sheriff Bea and Paul, an expert from the "Special Society", a local scientific organization in Paris that specializes in investigating mysterious and supernatural phenomena, finally revealed the secret of the corpse turning into a "wax figure".

Magic wax figure

Cary is a well-known collector in Paris who often visits art trading markets. One day in 2007, when he was browsing various exhibits in the trading market, he was suddenly attracted by a life-size human wax figure. The waxy skin of this wax figure shone under the light, like a human body. Lifelike living beings. Kari immediately decided to take action. After negotiating the price back and forth with the seller, Cary bought it.

After taking the wax figure back to the collection room at home, Kari took out a magnifying glass and began to appreciate it carefully. He stroked the surface of the wax figure, and the delicate yet moderately hard touch from his fingertips made him feel something strange. Soon, his eyes came to rest on a string of white copper necklaces around the neck of the wax statue. Its color looked a little dull, and there were spots of rust on the pendant. This is the first time Kari has seen a wax figure wearing a metal necklace, because metal necklaces can easily leave damaging scratches on the wax figure’s skin.

Kari stood up and decided to take a closer look at what was special about this wax figure. When he saw the hair, another incredible thing shocked him! Of all the human wax figures he had seen before, the hair was generally the roughest part. Usually, purchased human hair is processed and inserted into the head of the wax statue. In other words, the scalp under the hair of the wax statue will never have the same pores and textures as the human scalp. However, this wax statue of the Dead Witch has pores on the scalp and The texture is quite clear, just like a real scalp.

Kari couldn't help but have an ominous premonition in his heart, and he immediately examined the wax figure's nails in detail. It was found that the nails of the wax figure looked a bit gray and yellow, which was a flaw that was impossible to appear in wax figures in the past. So he tried to use a lighter to burn the long nails of the wax figure. If it were a chemical substitute, it should have burned immediately, but Kari saw that the nails turned black little by little, and then emitted an unpleasant burnt smell…

Cary was so frightened that he decided to call the police to kill the witch , because various signs showed that this was by no means an ordinary wax statue, it was most likely a human corpse!

After receiving the alarm, Sheriff Beah quickly led people to Cary's home. After a preliminary examination, the medical examiner determined that the wax figure was a corpse, but subsequent examinations left everyone, including the medical examiner, stunned: the corpse had been dead for at least several decades! What kind of person was this corpse in life? How did he become a wax figure? Was he framed by bad guys? Sheriff Bea knew that in order to solve the case, he must find the seller of this human wax figure. After cooperating with the police portrait, the distraught Kari strongly asked the police to take away the body that made him shudder.

After Bea returned to the police station, while sending people to the trading market to find the original seller, he also made contact with the "Special Society", a local scientific organization that specializes in investigating mysterious and supernatural phenomena.


Paul, an expert from the "Special Society", rushed to the police station and saw the wax figure corpse as if he had found a treasure. After a detailed inspection of the corpse, he told Bea with some excitement that the perfect wax-like state of the corpse was most likely caused by the corpse itself. Bea was obviously somewhat skeptical of this unreasonable inference, because people Soon after the corpse was buried, the muscle and skin tissue began to decay. Even if it was specially treated like a mummy, it would never be able to remain so perfect.

In order to further explore the cause, Paul and Bea applied to their superiors for an autopsy of the body. The sections of the post-mortem samples showed that there were no signs of any chemical treatment inside the corpse, but the fat, organs and even skin inside the corpse were in a sticky "corpse wax" state, which made it impossible for human cells and tissues to be processed. Decompose and dissolve, so the dead body can maintain a lifelike and radiant appearance. However, because the seller of the human wax figure has not yet been found, the case seems to have fallen into a headless mystery.

Just when Bea was at a loss, Paul suggested that he shift his focus on solving the case to the cemetery. Only by finding the base where the body was buried can it be possible to figure out the mystery of its waxing. Paul's words made Bea's eyes brighten.

Beah persuaded his superiors to dispatch police forces to inspect cemeteries inside and outside Paris one by one, but progress was slow, which made Chief Beah very depressed.

A week later, the police escorted a middle-aged man to see Bea. When this man was wandering near a cemetery, the police mistakenly thought he was a cemetery administrator. They showed him a photo of the wax figure and questioned him. Unexpectedly, after looking at the photo, his face suddenly changed and his eyes were full of fear. The police suspected that he was related to the case and immediately detained him and took him to the police station and handed him over to Beah for questioning.

Bea brought the man to the wax figure. The man was really scared when he saw the wax figure. So Bea interrogated him overnight. The middle-aged man confessed that he was a tomb robber and that he had stolen the wax figure from an ownerless grave outside Paris.

Cemetery Exploration

Bea and Paul let the tomb robbers lead them to the tomb of the body. They saw that there was nothing special about this tomb, but why didn't the body rot and become waxed?

Paul examined the coffin materials and found that it was made of heavy solid wood and had not rotted yet. Paul carefully inspected the bottom of the coffin and saw no traces of antiseptic substances. But Paul found that the inner and outer surfaces of the coffin were covered with a thick layer of paint. Especially on the four walls inside the coffin, there were many oil paintings painted with oil paint and mixed paint. Although some of them were worn and peeled off, they looked like Still quite beautiful.

Paul suddenly thought of a question. When he was doing research on the incorruptibility of the body of Saint Bernadette, he found that the walls of the saint's coffin and the tomb were also covered with the Bible using this kind of oil paint and mixed paint. Could it be that the secret of the pictures above lies in the paints and pigments?

After Paul and Bea returned, they conducted a laboratory analysis on the coffin paint samples they retrieved. The results were exactly the same as those in the Saint's Tomb. They were all the same oil paint and mixed paint. They came to the wax statue cemetery again. Once, Paul simply jumped into the coffin, trying to find other useful clues. After careful search, he found scratch marks on the inside of the coffin lid, which surprised and confused Paul.

Paul asked Bea and others to cover the coffin, and he lay in the dark coffin. When the air gradually became thinner, Paul suddenly smelled a faint pungent smell. He asked Bea to remove the coffin lid, jumped out and shouted happily: "I found the answer to the mystery!" His inference was that because the coffin was so well sealed, benzene still remained in the coffin, and this was the wax figure formed by the deceased's body. s reason.

It turns out that the mixture of oil paint and mixed paint contains a large amount of benzene. One of the hazards of this toxic substance to the human body is that after inhaling a large amount, it will cause the saponification of body fat – commonly known as the corpse wax phenomenon, but if the person is still If you breathe normally, some benzene will be excreted one after another. As long as it is not excessive, it will generally not cause harm to people due to complete saponification of fat.

Judging from the condition of the deceased, he was mistakenly thought to be dead after suffering some sudden illness. He woke up after being buried, but his weak body prevented him from opening the nailed coffin lid. Only some scratch marks can be left on it. At this stage, due to the increasing lack of oxygen in the coffin, he had to breathe heavily, and as a result he inhaled a large amount of benzene emitted from the paint. After his death, the dry environment in the tomb gave the body enough time to complete its saponification, turning it into a "wax statue."
