Carrion Beetle

What Is this?
My son found this bug on the laundry hanging outside yesterday. We have searched, and been unsuccessful in identifying it. I only came across your site a few minutes ago, and will continue to look through it. It’s awesome! I hope the picture is clear enough. We have had it since Wed afternoon, so we gave it a blueberry, and it was happily eating it when I got it out to photograph it. Thanks,

FOUND IT! I just emailed you a picture of a bug near a blueberry that we were feeding it. I should have waited a bit before I sent it in, because we found it on Beetles 2004. It’s a Carrion Beetle! Thanks anyway! Christina in Dundee, NY
