I think there was a real woodchipper case before the Fargo movie - featured on one of the forensic detective TV shows. The killer removed the arms and legs then deep froze everything so the body would chip cleanly, and he ran the chipper on the shore of a lake and the chipper flung the bits into the lake. They never found anything but a few bone fragments, none bigger than a finger nail.

I mean, messed up as it is, that's pretty damn smart right there.

Read The Westies, that'll give you your fill (turning an enemy into easy to handle pieces with a skilsaw in the bathtub). There have been numerous cases in the US and Canada where incinerators, burning barrels, etc have been used to try to get rid of bodies. Forensics is too good now, that damned spot is there to stay. How you get rid of a body is entirely dependent on how long you would like it to go away for. If you dig a deep hole, (6'+), and put body, then layers of dirt interspersed with 1' layers of big rocks to keep coyotes from digging it up and don't tell anyone it can stay there for a long time. If you don't care, have no evidence tying you to it, or simply don't have time to do anything else then shallow it is. Some people go to the landfill wrapped in trash bags and rolled up and wired into old carpet. Farmers and hunters are constantly running across bodies left in the woods; that is a temporary fix at best, although if they over-winter and scavengers are numerous it can make forensic work very challenging. When the Hell's Angels rubbed out the Bandidos in Canada they just left them all in their vehicles, parked near an HA member's farm, on the assumption they would be fingered for it anyway and not worth the time to hide.

Pup found this, as you can see it was quite fresh.

By spring there were just a few bones left.

A backhoe is the simplest solution.

They based the scene on the murder of flight attendant Helle Crafts by her pilot husband, Richard, in Newtown, CT. All they found were a few bits of her finger nails -- I think it set a precedent for murder conviction sans body. The Coens immediately filed it in the memory bank for future use.

Have you not heard of the Body Farm in Tennessee? .... They study human decomposition under different weather and environmental conditions. An adult human can, under some circumstances, be stripped to a dry skeleton in as little as 14 days, mostly by the action of maggots and other invertebrates.

Sounds like a good place to hide a body.

This story from a couple of weeks ago changed my thoughts on where to hide a body. I used to think that remote wilderness, swamp, or out at sea, was preferred, but I now think that a ditch along side a motorway may be perfectly adequate if a body can lay undiscovered for nine years.

In fact someone crashed their car into some bushes at an intersection of two busy interstates in NC a few years ago, and nobody noticed even the car, much less the body in it, for the best part of a year IIRC.

Two youths ran their car off an interstate In SC a few years ago too - into the median then down the bank and into a river between the two bridges that carried the two carriageways, and it was several weeks before someone noticed the submerged car with bodies in it.

Calling the police is getting dangerous.

It's better to get your own gun than to call the police.

As far as I can tell there's no bloody difference. Uniform or no uniform, it's just a bunch of untrained loons shooting at people when they feel nervous.
