(Newser) – Classy: An Ohio company put up a photo of a smiling couple along with a testimonial in which they rave about how much money they're making through the business. Problem is, the two people pictured are Ben and Catherine Mullany, British honeymooners murdered in Antigua last July, notes BoingBoing. "We have made $1,080 alone with your MyDishBiz internet business opportunity," reads the text.

“We are very happy with this program," continues the blurb, supposedly from Frank and Mary of New York. "This is the best opportunity we've seen online ever. Thanks again." The company apologized to the families of the two, who were shot dead in a bungled robbery that drew international headlines, notes WalesOnline. “Our company did not knowingly include the picture of the deceased on our website."
