Alabama has, as always, told the world to hold its beer! Let's talk about Pap and Mollie.  Pap and Mollie lived in west Birmingham in the 1930s. One evening in a drunken fight between this married couple, they stabbed each other to death. This alone is a sad situation but what makes it worse…no one ever claimed their bodies from the funeral home.

They became residents of a family-owned funeral home that was in business for over 100 years.  Unfortunately, when the business closed, Pap and Mollie remained behind in the funeral home. A few months after the doors closed the building caught fire. Pap and Mollie were propped up against a back wall and after the fire, they were exposed.

Imagine walking by and just seeing 2 mummified bodies standing there.  I believe my first instinct would be to run, and I am not a runner.  Police did investigate, and found no foul play.  So how did the fire start? Did Pap and Mollie start the fire to be found? A fire does not just spark from nothing…So once again, I have questions that may never be answered.

Pap and Mollie have thankfully been laid to rest in a proper burial. The Scott McPherson Funeral home has donated the money needed to do this. They have both been placed in a single coffin and buried at the Lakeview Cemetery in Edgewater.
