Mummified Body Found in Chicago
This information that comes with this photo states the mummified body pictured was unearthed in Chicago on Oct. 29th, 1903. It goes on to say the body was dug up in a gravel pit at 56th St and South Park Ave wrapped in carpet inside a long box. Murder was suspected, but the body was never identified.
I haven’t been able to dig up any more details to support the story.
