In a cemetery found in Hillside, Illinois, outside of Chicago, is the grave not only of Al Capone but also of Julia Buccola Petta, who was born in Italy.
At age 29, Julia died during childbirth, making her a martyr, and she was buried in her white wedding dress. Her mother, however, was distraught over losing her daughter and began to have nightmares that her daughter had been buried alive.
Six years after her death, Julia's grave was exhumed, and upon the opening of her casket, it was discovered Julia's body had not decayed. She looked as she had in life, with skin just as soft. The coffin, however, had been rotting.
Her mother took a photo of Julia in her casket and raised funds for a more elaborate tomb depicting a life-size statue of the bride and showcasing a photo taken of Julia in her coffin, six years after she had passed, as well as her wedding photo that matched the statue.
