This Oct. 29, 2013, photo taken in Evanston, Ill., shows an actual child's coffin filled with candy at the McCormick Library of Special Collections. The coffin is one of the artifacts from the “Death Collection” - an archive of death-related oddities once owned by horror novelist and screenwriter Michael McEachern McDowell that were purchased by Northwestern University.
