Scared Straight?

BBC News reports that a burglar in New Zealand made a gruesome discovery while doing some breaking-and-entering.  It was the body of the legal resident, dead by hanging.

The burglar was so shaken that he turned himself in, and the police started the process to deal with the apparent suicide.

The victim had been dead but a few hours when discovered by the intruder, and police say that the body could possibly have remained undisturbed for days.  I am sure that everyone who has to be present at the scene is very glad the criminal chose that particular residence to ransack, except for the burglar.
