If Edgar Allan Poe were alive today, he could pen a chilling tale about a madman who condemned commuters to death by bricking up their subway car.

Inspiration for such a yarn just popped up in Hamburg: Somebody (or more likely, bodies) managed to lug a bunch of construction blocks into a railway station and painstakingly glue them together to seal off a door on an S-Bahn train. Many initially thought the wall was fake, but now police and railway authorities have confirmed the ballsy action.
