What does placing manure over a dead body do?

Forensic Files showed an episode where a murderer burried the bodies over manure. does it turn the corpse into a pile of crap?

    I don't know but I would imagine covering a dead body in manure might have a few effects.

    1. It might help mask the smell of decomposition;

    2. It conceals the body;

    3. It might help accelerate decomposition of the corpse.
