Charlie Edwards worked many years at his father's funeral parlor, but Charlie was getting pretty bored talking to the dead every day and not getting any response. So one day he decided he would pick up someone at the local pub, put something in their drink, and drive them back to the funeral parlor. Then he would place them in a casket with a glass top so he could see their face and talk to them. When his drugged victims woke up, they weren't too happy to be hanging out at the Edwards Funeral Parlor as Charlie Edwards' entertainment.
Charlie didn't care what they thought because being able to talk to a live person meant everything to him. Charlie would always get the same response from the people he drugged. They would plead for Charlie to let them go. Some would offer him money - you name it - but that wasn't his intention. Charlie was just lonely and sick and tired of talking to a bunch of stiffs. Charlie would try to console the person he held captive, but that was no use. Charlie decided if they didn't cooperate he would take them out back to the cemetery and bury them alive for not cooperating.
