While it may sound like a movie plot, what happened to a handful of Minnesota natives this past week was no laughing matter.

A group of guys decided to rent an RV for a rolling bachelor party that would take them to Churchill Downs for the 2014 Kentucky Derby. Originally told that some of the compartments on the recreational vehicle didn't work, the guys decided not to open anything -- that is until they noticed a pungent scent coming from the RV's hatches. Boy, were they in for a surprise. When the group went to investigate, they were shocked to find a dead body hiding in one of the closets.

That, of course, put a dent in the crew's bachelor party trip. Instead, they opted to stay in the area, attend a Minnesota Wild playoff game and watch the derby from Canterbury Park instead.
