Gallows humor meets capitalism at this bizarre coroner's department shop. Gifts, "to die or kill for," include beach towels, T-shirts and aprons emblazoned with chalk outlines of corpses; toe-tag keychains; garment bags stamped with the words “Body Bag” and real “Coroner” jackets worn by the actual folks who go to crime scenes. It’s especially freaky because the museum and gift shop are housed in the actual LA Coroner’s building, so it’s really quiet, save for the occasional wailing of loved ones coming to identify their dearly departed. Seriously.
