James Wilson takes a look at Case Closed: The Dorian Corey Story, at The Gene Frankel Theatre:
When legendary drag performer Dorian Corey died in 1993 from AIDS-related complications, she left behind more than just proverbial skeletons in her closet. Tucked among the bugle-beaded gowns and feathered boas were the actual mummified remains of Robert Worley's dead body. Worley, who had been one of Corey's lovers in the 1960s, died from two gunshot wounds to his head, and his corpse was wrapped in Naugahyde and hidden in a garment bag. Investigators determined that he had been dead for twenty-five years.
