Knowing that Mussolini was an MI5 agent came as quite a shock recently, but apparently stranger news has revealed that his brain has appeared on Ebay for 15,000 Euros.
His remains, apparently contained in three glass vials, had apparently been stolen from a hospital in Milan, where an autopsy was conducted on his body, following his execution, by partisans at the end of the Second World War.
However, due to Ebay rule, which do not allow the sale of body parts on their website, it has been taken down from the website.
