How much "dead weight" can an adult male and female carry? Im going to assume Long would struggle to carry her end of the body. If so, then that's probably three people required to carry Chapman's not insignificant weight plus lie to the police.

Well I'm a female who has done my fair share of slinging drunks, who were adult male dead weight. I'm not super strong, but with two people it's manageable. Probably quite a bit more so if you are SUPER motivated like you might be with a corpse on your hands.
