This is certainly one of the strangest news articles I've ever read.
A Los Angeles auction house said on Tuesday it would sell the simple pine coffin in which Oswald was buried for almost 20 years.

"There's just a lot of interest in Kennedy and anything to do with his assassination," said Laura Yntema, auction manager at Santa Monica, California-based Nate D. Sanders.

    Elephant in the room - if he was buried in it for 20 years, where is he now?

    Well, I read the link. Nothing odd about it. They just dug him up after 20 years to make sure he was dead. As you do.

    Some people in this country will want to do that annually when Thatcher finally goes.

    That so much reminds me of my favourite political insult. Charles Haughey the Irish PM had resigned again and one of his arch enemes Conor Cruise O'Brien predicted he'd be back with "I'll only believe he's gone when I see him buried at a crossroads at midnight with a stake through his heart"
