    Just when you thought you had heard it all...This is Totally Amazing... Holding the Dead For Ransom!

    ROME — The body of Mike Bongiorno, who was Italy's top quiz show host for more than 50 years and a close friend of the Prime Minister, was snatched from his grave, officials said Tuesday.

    It is not the first time that the body of a famous personality has been snatched in Italy.

    In 2001, in a cemetery near the one where Bongiorno was buried, the corpse of investment banker Enrico Cuccia was stolen and a ransom demanded. The thieves were identified and arrested.
