The Victim of the Beast


New favorite tombstone (barely edging out Popcorn the Clown‘s final resting place): Lilly E Gray’s tombstone in Salt Lake Cemetery (Salt Lake City, UT). Despite the amazing epitaph and the many local rumors it has generated, it is probable that Lilly  simply died of natural causes. However, her husband Elmer, who would have been in charge of writing her epitaph, seems to have been right off his rocker and prone to interesting tales. He once filed a petition with the Utah Board of Pardons in spite of never having been arrested, in which he claims to have been kidnapped and held hostage for ten years by Democrats.

  1. I grew up in Salt Lake City, all us young goth kids made it a point to take our photo here and several other notable graves. Still one of the most beautiful cemeteries I’ve ever seen.
