This gravestone from 1875 reads:

“Kate McCormick, Seduced and pregnant by her father’s friend, Unwed she died from abortion, her only choice, Abandoned in life and death by family, With but a single rose from her mother, Buried only through the kindness of an unknown benefactor, Died February 1875, age 21, Victim of an unforgiving society, Have mercy on us.”

In February, 2016, a fisherman found a yacht adrift off the coast of the Philippines. When he boarded the seemingly abandoned yacht, he came across a grim scene: the mummified remains of a man slumped over in his chair. Using documents found on board, they identified the man as 59-year-old Manfred Fritz Bajorat from Germany. While it appeared that he had been dead for a prolonged period of time, his autopsy revealed that he had only been dead for a week. Due to the salt air and dry wind, mummification was advanced. While his cause of death was never determined, it was believed he had suffered a heart attack. He had been travelling the world on his yacht, Sayo, for the past twenty years.
