1. Carl Tanzler

Carl Tanzler was a German doctor who was employed at a Marine Hospital in Key West, Florida in the early part of the 20th century. He became obsessed with one of his patients, Maria Elena Milagro de Hoyos, a beautiful young woman who eventually died of tuberculosis in his care. Before her death, he gave her presents of jewelry and clothing, and he spent every night at her graveside after her death. Eventually he disinterred her body, and brought it to his home, where he used plaster, rags, perfume, and chemicals to preserve it. He lived with the body for seven years until he was discovered.
