    (July 31, 1909-October 25, 1931)
    Birth name is Maria Elena Milagro Hoyos Mesa
    Died of tuberculosis at age 22
    Was 'resurrected' by Karl Tanzler
    Subject of real life ghost story 'Undying Love'
    Her beauty drove Karl Tanzler (a.k.a Ct. Carl Von Cosel) mad with obsession.
    She may have inadvertently led him on because she believed he could save her.
    She believed he was a doctor and a count. He was neither.
    Von Cosel wouldn't let her rest in peace and stole her corpse from her mausoleum. He kept it in his bed for seven years.
    According to this crackpot, she actually reanimated five years after she died, but only for a few minutes. She woke up, turned and looked at him, and fell dead again. Apparently, she chose death over him.
    She was reportedly so beautiful that tourists would often ask to photograph her.
    She suffered a miscarriage, which triggered her illness.
    Her husband abandoned her after she was diagnosed with tuberculosis, which was incurable at the time.
    Her whole family eventually died from the same disease.
    It wasn't her fault that some old pervert wouldn't leave her alone.
    She turned him down numerous times, but he just didn't get the hint.
    He inserted a tube inside her vagina to have sex with her corpse.
    During his trial, people sympathized with him for being a romantic.
    After von Cosel's acquittal, she had to be buried in an unmarked grave to keep him from disturbing her remains again.
