The body was painted with a reddish fluorescent paint so that a black light would make it shine in the dark. Earlier, it had been displayed in a casket at a now-defunct wax museum as the "thousand-year-old man." The discovery that it was a human corpse came Wednesday during the filming of a scene in the fun house for the television series. LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police are looking for the former owners of a wax museum after the discovery that what was thought to be a wax dummy hanging from a noose turned out to be a painted mummified corpse. The corpse was discovered in an amusement park fun , house during the filming of the television show, "The Six Million Dollar Man." Long Beach Police turned the mummy over to the Los Angeles County Coroner yesterday to determine how old it is and where it came from.

He was about to glue it back on when he noticed that a bone was sticking out. A police investigator said it was "too much like Vincent Price time." Long Beach Police Sgt. Daniel Sallman said he was attempting to locate the former owner of the wax museum to find out how he acquired the body. A preliminary examination by the coroner's office showed that it was an elderly man, 5-foot-3, 150 pounds, but much younger than a thousand years. "The corpse has been autopsied at some time and has two embalming incisions, which I think would take it out of the realm of being a thousand years old," said Don Dry nan, an assistant coroner. The body appears to be that of a foreigner, possibly from South America, the coroner's office said. Drynan said the autopsy incision is not the type used in the United States, and, 'because the skin is "hard as a rock," the body apparently was embalmed with a fluid with a heavy metal base, such as arsenic. The use of arsenic in embalming fluid is prohibited in the United States. "The body appears to have been in this mummified condition for a long time," Drynan said. He said the corpse would be examined by X-ray, autopsy and tissue analysis. A forensic dentist will study the teeth. If identification cannot be established, the body will be cremated, Drynan said. What was the Six Million Dollar Man doing at the amusement park? The script for the ABC show called for star Lee Majors to track a group of subversives to a carnival -which turns out to be a traveling missile launch base. The script didn't mention the mummy. 4 Persons Arrested In Mass Murder cAndover 298 South County Road (Just a few doors south of Royal Palm Way) Charge privileges with Some states already have halted their mass immunizations clinics at shopping centers and other similar locations but continue giving shots at regular health centers.

From Post Wire Services ROPERS CROSSROADS, S C. -Four persons, including convicted murderer Donald Henry Gaskins, were charged yesterday in the death of a man believed to be the 11th victim in a mass murder case. Hugh Munn, spokesman for the state Law Enforcement Division said Susanne M. Kipper, 29, and John Phillip Owens Jr., 22, both from the Lake City area of Florence County, were arrested around 1 a.m. yesterday. John William Powell, 30, was arrested in Florida around 3 a.m. in De Land. All four were charged with one count of murder in the death of Barnwell Yates, a Lake City man missing for almost three years. A body, tentatively identified as Yates, was found Wednesday near this Williamsburg County community. It marked the ninth murder charge against Gaskins in a case which began a year ago when six bodies were found in shallow graves near the small Florence County community of Prospect. Guns Shipped to U.N.; Agents Arrest Suspect WASHINGTON - Federal agents have arrested a man in Reston, Va., on a charge of illegally sending a shipment of 100 submachine guns to Iraq's U.N. mission in New York, it has been learned. Antonio G. Polytarides, 31, was arrested Friday on a charge of illegally transferring the guns to an address in New York which proved to be that of the Iraqi mission. No spokesman for the mission could be reached immediately. The United States and Iraq do not have diplomatic relations. The use of a U.N. mission to illegally receive guns, if that eventually proves to be the fact, could have repercussions nevertheless. A spokesman for the State Department declined to comment on the case. The use of a diplomatic mission as an illegal drop for guns could mean the weapons were intended for politically sympathetic terrorists or it could mean something else, according to government officials. The weapons themselves were described as .45-caliber M10 submachine guns with a 32-round capacity, which, according to one gun dealer, are manufactured primarily for the police market and retail for $130 to $150 apiece. 'Range War' Brewing; Hunters, Farmers Mad OAK GROVE, Tenn. - The shooting of a dog triggered warnings of a "range war" yesterday between fox hunters and farmers in this Middle Tennessee countryside. Hunters charged that a foxhound was shot as it ran across the property of W.C. Fiscus, who has complained that hunting dogs are killing his cattle. Fiscus and a neighbor, Robert Bradley Sr., were charged with shooting a dog belonging to Delmis Walker, but a judge has threatened to throw out the case for lack of evidence. Flu Shot Turnout Below Expectations ATLANTA - With many states entering the final phases of their mass immunization efforts against swine influenza, the national Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported yesterday that only 35 million Americans have been inoculated, far below the expectations of the 2.99 and 3.99 35-light miniatures and 15-light indoor light sets.
