There are still plenty of questions and very few answers but here is what we know so far:
According to the initial coroner’s report Hoagy is indeed dead. Additionally, in a medical first, she insists that Hoagy actually smells better in death. He still smells awful but somehow a bit more tolerable.
Fans continue to snatch up Hoagy merchandise. A “Hoagy Cagg fanny pack” with dead fish head zipper sold on eBay for $78 to someone with the moniker “We Wants the Fish Heads”.
By formal request and to protect his anonymity, there will be no open viewing of Hoagy Cagg. But if you happen to be anywhere near the harbor, there is an open smelling down there.
