To rest in a good one after dying is not a privilege of all. See the strangest cases of deceased who have had the tomb raped
10. Tassos Papadopoulos (1934-2008)
Crime scene – Cyprus
When – 2009
President of Cyprus between 2003 and 2008, Tassos Papadopoulos articulated the country’s entry into the European Monetary Union in 2007, prompting the nation to adopt the euro as currency later. But, by the way, there are people who did not like it very much. In December 2009, his body was stolen from the tomb in the capital, Nicosia, being recovered only in March this year.
Curiosity – If in March the police were still investigating the motivation of the act, the way it happened was already famous: to assault the deceased, the guys erected a tombstone of almost 250 pounds!
9. Noel Rosa (1910-1937) and Orlando Silva (1915-1978)
Place of crime – Brazil
When – 2006 and 2009
Two of the biggest names in Brazilian music, composer Noel Rosa, Poet of the Village, and Orlando Silva, the Cantor of Crowds, were chased by fans until after their deaths. Orlando and Noel had their tombs stolen, respectively, in 2006 and 2009, in Rio de Janeiro. From Orlando, they took the bronze bust, and Noel, the guitar that adorned the grave. Orlando’s bust was found in a junkyard, and to prevent theft, his family chose not to leave him in the cemetery. But the guitar of Noel until today did not give a sign of life.
8. Charles Chaplin (1899-1977)
Place of crime – Switzerland
When – 1978
One of the great geniuses of the seventh art, Englishman Charles Chaplin made a career in the USA, spending the last years of his life in quiet Vevey, Switzerland. It was there that, a year after his death, Chaplin staged a scene worthy of his comedies of the silent film era: the bumbling robbery of his corpse. In March of 1978, two subjects sneaked Chaplin’s body and asked for a ransom of about 11 million reais. But in May of that same year, while tracking the connections, the police changed the script of the bad guys, recovering the remains of the artist and putting the thieves into cane.
7. Alexander Stewart (1803-1876)
Crime Scene – USA
When – 1876
Like any wealthy businessman, Alexander Stewart took care of his safety, but he would never think he would be kidnapped after hitting his boots! For it was in 1876 when his corpse was taken from the tomb in New York by a fellow who identified himself as Romaine. The guy even asked for $ 250,000 at the time, but after much bargaining he returned the hostage for $ 20,000. After getting the money, the thief left the body on a road and disappeared. Now, with the reduction in the price of the ransom, you can see that Stewart was good at business until after his death!
6. Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
Place of crime – France
When – 1961
Famed for his extravagances in life, Irish writer Oscar Wilde also became news after his death. All because of the bizarre attacks against his tombstone, in the Père-Lachaise cemetery in Paris. On two occasions, the angel sculpture that adorns the tomb – and which had a well-made penis – had the member stolen, it is unknown who. In 1961, after the angel was cast for the second time, it was decided to leave him without sex. Despite the castrated angel, the writer’s tomb is crowded with lipstick marks, left by Wilde fans who visit the place.
5. Juan Domingo Perón (1895-1974)
Crime scene – Argentina
When – 1987
General Juan Domingo Perón was president of Argentina by two occasions, being idolized by some, but also hated by others. And perhaps they were the last ones who, in 1987, not only violated the coffin of the former president but stole the hands, sword and cap of the deceased! The criminals, who until today have not been identified, have even asked for the equivalent of 14 million reais for the stolen parts. But since no one has paid the ransom, the skeleton continues to handle …
4. Burr Oak Cemetery
Crime scene – USA
When – 2009
Burr Oak Cemetery in Alsip, Illinois, was overcrowded. To address the “housing” problem, site manager Carolyn Towns and three gravediggers, Keith Nicks, Terrance Nicks and Maurice Daley, decided to dig up some dead to bury others and thus earn extra cash by reselling graves! The only other thing is that the police discovered everything and all the “brokers” went to the xilindró.
3. Gladys Hammond (1915-1997)
Crime scene – England
When – 2004
The Englishwoman Gladys Hammond, or rather, her corpse had nothing to do with the story. The problem is that her daughter married the wrong guy: Christopher Hall, a researcher for guinea pigs. Furious at Hall’s activity, four animal rights advocates stole Gladys’s body from New Church City’s cemetery, saying they would only return it if the farm was closed. Except that the police entered the parade and the kidnapping ended with the arrest of the thieves. The curious thing is that, even having regained his mistress, Hall decided to close the farm.
2. General Southern Cemetery
Place of crime – Venezuela
When – 2009
The General del Sur cemetery in Caracas used to be the place where the dead of the Venezuelan elite rested in peace. I used to. In 2009, the setting there was more ghoulish than many horror movies, with several tombs open and missing corpses. According to police, most of the defilers belong to a sect named Palo, who uses bones in his rituals. For Palo, the more powerful a person is in life, the more energy his ham possesses. With the demand, it rolls up a black market of bones, and a skull goes out for R $ 4 thousand!
1. Elmer Grandin (1861-1933)
Crime scene – USA
When – 2002
American actor Elmer Grandin starred in the movies in the early 20th century. But the guy became famous even at the end of 2002, when his corpse was stolen from New York’s tomb and – amazing! – taken to a party dressed as Darth Vader! Elmer’s brilliant “acting” was made possible by teenagers Michael Herse, Michael Sossi and Patrick O’Rourke, who were caught when the buchicho of the feat came to the ears of the direction of their school. The board called the police at once, returning the skeleton to the graveyard.
