The oldest person in the world is dead.
Emma Tillman from Connecticut, Americaville held the title for 4 days before she died and was replaced by Yone Minagawa from Japan. Emma Tillman replaced a bloke called Emiliano Mercado del Toro who was the world's oldest person for about a month before he met his maker. His predecessor made it for a few months.
As I read more and more into these goings-ons, I detected a disturbing trend.
My suspicions were confirmed when I had a look at the Oldest People in the World table on WikiMcPedia.
Each and every person who has held the title of Oldest Person in the World has turned up dead.
Who is killing them? And to what end?
