Biography:

Close your eyes and imagine a Vampire. Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula. But another kind of vampire was believed to live in rural New England, where on March 17, 1892, three corpses were exhumed from Rhode Island cemetery. One of the bodies was that of Mercy Brown, who had succumbed to consumption. It appeared to her family that she had turned over in her grave. They cut out her heart, which still had blood in it, burned it on a nearby rock, and fed her ashes to her ailing brother. In his fascinating investigation of this shocking custom, Bell relates the stories of twenty families who dug up their loved ones to save the living.
