    Super cool stuff, thanks for posting.
    By the way, i was wondering, did Tiny Tim died during his show or shortly after finishing it? What did he died from?

    Here's a picture of Nathaniel Hawthorne in the 1860s. He died in 1864, so I imagine it couldn't be too long before his death.

    I have seen a picture of Bonnie on the slab with her breasts exposed, I guess as some sort of final humiliation.

    No, not a humiliation, but just to expose all the bullet wounds. Those coroner photos were never originally intended for publication, just documentation for the authorities. They usually photograph dead bodies, nude.

These two things ultimately caused his heart attack (plus that fact that he didn't do as doctors suggested).
    Thanks so much... diabetes and passing out=bad news

    Here is Daniel Webster four months before his death in 1852. Three days before he died a very drunken Daniel (he would drink a quart of whiskey before noon each day for 50 years!) got on his buckboard to ride to town. He lost control and fell out of the wagon at high speed and the back wheel rolled over his head. He died three days later of brain swelling.

    Here is the very last photo of Charlie Chaplin in November of 1977. This picture was taken for the family Christmas Cards. Chaplin died that Christmas. He was still newsworthy as a corpse as it was stolen by ransomers. The ghouls were caught and Chaplin was re-intered with a couple of tons of concrete.

    What a wonderful pic... he looked so happy...i recently saw that film about him. Boy it was sad - the pic at the end made me think he died within nature - a way he wanted.

    Ive always found this story quite fascinating. Where on earth did they keep the body while they had it? In what state were Chaplin's remains by then?? Its beyong creepy to think about it...

    I'm doing this from memory, but I think Chaplin had been dead about a month when they stole the body and the ghouls didn't have the body more than a couple of weeks. Appearantly they were not intellegent people and were easily tracked down. IIRC they didn't even open up the box while they had it. Oona Chaplin refused to deal them them and said in effect "keep it."

    Because Charlie had told her when he was alive, something along the lines of, "if my body is held for ransom, don't pay anyone, I'm dead, I wouldn't care", and so on. Kind of ironic?
    I had onions at lunch. I had garlic dressing at dinner. But he'll never know because I stay kissing-sweet, the new dazzledent way

    Thanks Magnus. I remember reading that they asked for 600.000 first and then decided to ask for "only" 250000. And yes,it seems that Oona never even considered paying them.
