If you must die alone, make sure people know that you have something worth stealing - that way you might be discovered more quickly.
AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A Dutch burglar phoned police after fleeing in panic when he found the corpse of an 89-year-old woman in a house he broke into in The Hague.
Police said they were still searching for the burglar who "got the fright of his life."
"He said he was the burglar and that he found a corpse," a police spokesman said. "He found the mortal remains in one of the rooms and left the home to call emergency number 112."
Police were investigating if anything was stolen and believed the woman may have been dead for some time.
This seems to be happening with disturbing regularity.
