Is this the same one you couldn't get rid of in the peat bog or have you acquired another?
I do not believe that a body would tan after it dead. To tan, the skin must be alive. A "tan" is when melanin is released by the cell. It needs to be alive to release anything.
When the body dies, your cells don't immediately stop your metabolism winds down over a short time. Tannig involves production of melanin in cells in the skin, and so would probably continue for a little while after death.
