The Screaming Mummy

A mummy excavated near the Valley of the Kings in Egypt is still a mystery. No one knows who he was in life, so his remains were labeled as "Unknown Man E." Certain details about his burial suggested that he was a person of dishonor for some reason. Some theorize that he was a royal assassin, or at least a scapegoat for an assassination. But aside from speculation, Unknown Man E remains a rare example of a mummy found in an Egyptian royal burial ground that hasn't been identified. But what about the screaming part? That has a perfectly logical explanation, but not one that makes us feel better about him.
