There are simple, dignified ways to leave this vale of tears, and then there are other ways.
Among the other ways: Dying in a booth at an adult bookstore, with your body not being found for more than 12 hours.
That's how Brodrick White, 35, went to his reward either Monday night or Tuesday morning, Houston police say.

White, according to security video, entered an adult book store in the 15500 block of the Eastex Freeway about 8:30 p.m. Monday night.
We don't know what happened after that until about 2 p.m. Tuesday, when an attendant discovered his dead body in the booth. We assume he was alive and enjoying the offerings for at least a while.
"White did not appear to suffer any signs of trauma," HPD says.
An autopsy will be performed, to determine the cause of death.
