What do you get when you mix food from Burger King and a trip to the bathroom? An extended stay in the stall.

An unidentified man was found dead in the men's room at a Burger King in Beaumont, Utah. According to Jeff Curl of the Beaumont police, there was no sign of foul play, and a videotape of the bathroom showed the man checking in, but not checking out.

Just like the Roach Motel.

The next guy to enter the men's room found the body and alerted the Burger King staff.

The King has left the building.
