SINGAPORE - The Curry Murder
For decades, curry, has been synonymous with Asian cuisine. The smell of curry is so potent, that it has been used in the past by drug smugglers to disguise their goods. According to the book Murder Most Foul, as recent as September 2012, a smuggler in Birmingham, UK, was caught after attempting to import 68kgs of heroin, worth more than $30 million, by hiding it in a container filled with 600 boxes of curry spices.
And a couple years before that, curry was also used to hide something far more sinister... a dismembered body.
