Summary
In 1978, three months after the death of comedy icon Charlie Chaplin, his body disappeared from its grave in Corsier-Sur-Vevefy, Switzerland. Examining Magistrate Jean-Daniel Tenthorey and the Swiss Police had no clues to follow, only ridiculous rumors. It would be quite some time before the robbers would eventually contact the family asking for a half million Swiss Francs. After being denied by the family, the robbers would lower the amount a number of times before escalating threats of violence
