Just in time for Halloween: A wax version of singer Paul McCartney's head is on the loose. The mop-topped likeness came from a wax museum at a seaside resort in England. A London auctioneer had taken it — in a cardboard box — to be appraised, then left the box under a train seat somewhere between London and Reading. There's a reward for the head, whose whereabouts remain something of a magical mystery.
