How David Bowie's Death Was Covered by Newspapers Around the World

Heritage says the lock comes from a former employee at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London. She snipped some of Bowie's hair in the 1980s to create a wig for a wax figure of the singer. Heritage says she kept it as a souvenir.

The rock superstar died in January at 69 after a battle with liver cancer.
