The Insane Clown Posse
's annual Meeting of the Juggalos
was marred by the death of a fan, it was revealed at the weekend.
The 14th annual gathering took place at Cave in Rock, IL, where the thousands of attendees included one 24-year-old Cory Collins
According to a report in the Riverfront Times
, Collins approached a fellow Juggalo camper to say he wasn't feeling well. They offered him a space in their tent to rest, but returned to find a shocking surprise.
"When the owner of the tent, who admitted that he had taken mescaline earlier in the day, returned around 2 p.m. to check on the man, he found that the body was cold. He explained that he went to lift the man's arm up
(which reportedly displayed track marks) to check his pulse, but when he did so 'the guy's whole body came up - rigor mortis had begun to set in - and blood came out of his mouth,'"
said the report.
It continues: "The man then frantically began trying to wake his sleeping friends, telling them that there was a dead man in the tent with them. 'These are four dudes that had been sleeping with a corpse.' His friends initially thought he was joking or playing a prank."
It appeared that Collins died of a heroin overdose, but the event continued.
