Man on trial for murder claims the octopus did it9/11/2012
A 31-year-old man is on trial in South Korea for the murder of his 22-year-old girlfriend, who he claims died after choking on an octopus. "Mr. K" says "Ms. K" was eating Sannakji, the infamous Korean dish of still-twitching octopus tentacles that's known as a choking hazard, thanks to the moving octopus suckers that can get stuck in one's throat. Prosecutors say Mr. K killed his girlfriend after he forged a life insurance policy for her one month before, which named him as the beneficiary. There was no autopsy and the woman's body was cremated soon after her death, so there's a chance the murder charge won't stick. [Source]
