Funhouse Where Dangling 'Dummy1 Really Was Lifelike i IdW?o ffr Is Mummy Elmer? Coroner To Decide to a carnival sideshow for exhibit. Friedman said Louis Sonney, the founder of his firm, "loaned the old carney who had the body $500 and got Elmer as security on the loan. The carney never paid him back." Sonney put the mummified outlaw in his own traveling show until the 1940s, then retired him to a Los Angeles warehouse. In 1968, the mummy was sold to a wax museum and billed as "The 1,000 year old man." It got mixed up with authentic dummies and found its way into the funhouse five years ago. Although the coroner has not positively identified the remains, examiners found a copper-jacketed bullet in the abdominal cavity and a tag on the chest reading: "Property of Louis Sonney."

"He's not going anywhere," a spokesman for the coroner's office said yesterday. "Not until the mummy has been positively identified. Everyone seems to have identified the remains except us. We have a team of investigators working on it now." There seems to be no peace for Elmer. The story unfolded Tuesday when a television crew from the "Six Million Dollar Man" came to the Long Beach Pike and borrowed the "Laff in the Dark" funhouse for a set. . Dangling from the attraction was a grotesque mummy, presumed to be a wax figure, which was splashed with fluorescent paint and wired to flash on and off to startle funhouse patrons. Only when a film crew technician went to adjust the mummy's arm, it fell off, exposing the remains of a human bone. Examined by the county coroner's office, investigator's found a .32-20 bullet in the corpse's chest, and a type of embalming fluid used in the early 1900s. "Yeah, it's old Elmer, all right," moviemaker Dave Friedman said Friday, apparently clearing up the mystery of the mummy's secret. Friedman, president of Entertainment Ventures Inc., which once owned the mummy, said the remains were those of Elmer McCurdy, a train robber who met his end at the hands of sheriff's deputies in Pawhuska, Okla., on Oct. 8, 1911.
