10 Celebrities Who Should Have Rested in Peace

Just because you're dead and buried doesn't mean you need to stay that way. In fact, there's all kinds of reasons someone might decide to pull you out of the ground. And if you're a celebrity, chances are those reasons are extremely weird.

Take the case of Sammy Davis, Jr. They just wanted his jewelry back:
A talented entertainer, Sammy Davis, Jr. enjoyed plenty of fame as a member of the Rat Pack. What many didn’t know, though, was that by the end of his life he was nearly broke. After his burial, Davis’ wife found out there was almost no money left. She decided the best thing to do was have Davis’ body exhumed so that she could recover the jewelry that had been buried with him – all $70,000 of it.
