This Girl Has Been Dead For A Hundred Years – and She Just Opened Her Eyes


The Capuchin Monks of Palermo, Italy have been in the business of mummification since 1599. Where once business was booming, it has since fizzled out, and the last mummies to be placed in their underground catacombs were buried around 1920. One of them was a 2 year old girl named Rosalia Lombardo, who died of pneumonia almost a century ago. But from time to time, she blinks.

Her devastated parents begged the Capuchin Monks of Palermo to mummify her body so that it could be preserved forever, and the men happily obliged.

Fast forward nearly 100 years later, and Rosalia’s body is still being displayed in Italy. She has become known for a creepy phenomenon in which her eyes repeatedly open, and then close again.

Somebody call an exorcist. Or the Ghostbusters. Call somebody. That’s just not supposed to happen.

 Science explains this phenomena occurs due to the changing temperatures in the room where her body is held.
