!! OMG, good idea or bad idea? Researchers May Have Discovered Dracula’s Grave — And They Want To Open It !!

Okay, so a student by the name of Erika Stella who is doing her dissertation on Naples’ Santa Maria la Nova Church, is convinced that a headstone on a grave belongs to none other than the 15th century Prince Vlad Tepes III aka DRACULA!

According to history, Tepes’ cruelty and domination was very well-documented except for his final days. In 1476, all knowledge of his whereabouts ceases. Some say he died in battle while others say he was taken prisoner. Some scholars believe that Tepes was the ransomed to his daughter who lived in Naples, where he spent the rest of his days.
Researchers noticed that the tomb at the Santa Maria la Nova Church is covered with Transylvanian symbols, as noticed by Raffaello Glinni, a Medieval history scholar.
Glinni states:
When you look at the bas-relief sculptures, the symbolism is obvious. The dragon means Dracula and the two opposing sphinxes represent the city of Thebes, also known as Tepes. In these symbols, the very name of the count Dracula Tepes is written.

Check out some pictures after the jump of the symbolism on the grave site that makes Erika believe it’s the man himself. The researchers are asking authorities for permission to open the grave to verify their findings:

!! OMG, who’s got $30,000 for bail?: I present to you the hottest grave robber there ever was !!

I’m not even gonna post the picture of the other guy, because… well, this isn’t about him. This is about 29 year old David Ryan from Kendall County, who was arrested this week at Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago for stealing brass vases from the graves, ya’ll!
David was caught by police at the cemetery with a bunch of tools on his person (!), and he and his friend (who’s not as blessed in the hot department), are both linked to a series of other grave robbings in their county. David also didn’t come easy. He resisted arrest and tried to fight the cops in the cemetery during a lighting storm (I made that last part up).
Congrats David! You’ve won this minute’s award for HOTTEST GRAVE ROBBER OUT THERE! Now, where’s $30,000 when you need it?
