    Man boasts of grave-robbing, stealing famous composers' teeth, for "macabre museum"

    Thief boasts that he has robbed the graves of famous composers
    and stolen their greatest (dental) works for macabre museum

    (Daily Mail)
    A thief has boasted that he has robbed the graves of two of the world's most famous composers - to steal their dentures.

    Slovakian Ondrej Jajcaj confessed to breaking into the tombs of 19th century composers Johann Strauss and Johannes Brahms and extracting their teeth in a video posted on YouTube.

    He then goes on to claim the stolen teeth will become part of an exhibition of hundreds of objects plundered from graves.

    Wait. What?
    The two composers' graves were opened earlier this year and it was found they were missing their teeth, both real and false.

    Austrian authorities decided to order checks on the graves of other famous composers buried in the same cemetery, including Beethoven, Schubert and Schoenberg.

    "Not worth investigating and fell outside of Austria's statue of limitations?"

    Makes me wonder if that grave robber knows anything about our Mutter Museum? Nobody stole anything for any of the exhibits let alone out of a grave.
