In the late 1800s, Octavia Smith Hatcher became very ill and slipped into a coma & shortly after was pronounced dead. After she was buried, Her husband feared the Doctor made a mistake. He procured an exhumation of her grave only to find that his worst fears were in fact true. The lining on the inside of the coffin had been scratched and torn to pieces. Octavia’s nails were bloodied and broken, and her face was contorted with horrific fear. She had died in the ground after being buried alive.
