    just from pictures I thought he was entombed in the same manor as JPII

    it wont let me post the picture of his tomb but its at the bottom of this page
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_John_Paul_I

    if he was entombed in a different manner it was probably because it was his wishes to do so. he like all other humans have the right to decide how he wants to be buried or what have you.

    It just appeared somewhat odd. The man is Pope for 34 days. Suddenly dies and there is no autopsy. And then he is cremated where other Popes are usually buried within the walls of the Vatican and are never cremated.
