Real Corpse Found On Csi: New York Set
The cast of CSI: NEW YORK had to deal with a real life corpse Tuesday (12SEP06) when an actual mummified body was discovered inside a building where the show was shooting. The series is actually filmed in downtown Los Angeles, not New York, and the body was found on the fifth floor of a building used as a location shoot. According to a source the body, "was discovered by a building engineer who checked on the tenant because he had not paid rent for the month." Making matters even stranger was the fact that the show had already shot a similar episode revolving around the discovery of a mummified body. The show's stars, Gary Sinise and Melina Kanakaredes, were not on location at the time of the discovery. Police and representative's from the coroner's officer were dispatched and will perform an autopsy on the remains.
