In this episode Jennie and Dianne are joined by special guest Suzie Lennox, an expert in the history of body snatching especially in England, Ireland, and Scotland. Suzie shares the stories of successful and unsuccessful body snatchers, why they wanted to dig up the Dead in the first place, and how cemeteries and families tried to prevent the snatching of the Dead. Take a walk with us through the ordinary extraordinary cemeteries where those who were laid to rest did not always remain in their graves.
