Monster Mash Singer's Remains Turned into Jewelry was a top story for October. Enjoy our 2008 news rewind as you read the story again:(antiMusic) Not sure why this was sent to us but if you're looking for a disturbing Halloween story, here you go! We've heard about "blood diamonds" but "cremated remains diamonds?" Here is the twisted tale: Bobby Pickett who cowrote and performed "The Monster Mash", died at the age of 69 on April 25, 2007 in Los Angeles, California, due to complications from leukemia. His daughter Nancy Huus was at his side when he died.

After his death, Nancy had a .44 ct colorless LifeGem diamond created from his cremated remains. She wears it in a white gold solitaire ring. Pickett was diagnosed with leukemia 5 years ago, and he and his daughter Nancy talked openly about death. "I saw a show about turning cremated remains into diamonds," said Nancy, "I immediately called my father and told him that I wanted to make a diamond from his cremated remains; he loved the idea."

On Halloween Pickett used to say "They dig me up every year." This year for Halloween his daughter is wearing him as a LifeGem Diamond Ring. "Bobby was a minimalist, not elaborate," said Huus. Her simple solitaire ring reflects that personality. - more on this story
