Dr Giuseppi Stoppolini, a professor of psychology at Camerino University in Italy, held classes on the occult. They were very popular among students and some of the more frequented classes at the school. Reportedly the professor introduced students to a woman named Maria Bocca during one of those classes in the year 1950 with results that astounded them all.
Maria went into a strange trance and spoke with the voices of dead people known to students and those present. Near the end of the session came a voice that no one recognized, a voice that pleaded with them to listen.
It said: “I was born Rosa Manichelli. When I died, I was Rosa Spadoni, but my husband has died since then, too. We are both in the Cemetery at Castel-Raimondo a few miles from Camerino. I am asking only that you help others, because the same thing can happen to them. Two days after the death certificate was signed, I was taken to the cemetery in a deep coma and buried alive!”
Dr Stoppolini later discovered that infact there had been a Rosa Spadoni who died in the Civil Hospital in Camerino on September 4, 1939. She was buried at Castel-Raimondo.
Later it was decided that the body would be exhumed, there were no living relatives to protest.
On September 13, 1950 a group gathered by Rosa’s grave, including Dr Stoppolini, pathologists, Italian Officials and a photographer.
What they discovered was shocking and it was the professor himself who opened the coffin.
The skeleton lay on it’s back, the skull turned to the left. The hand was bent upwards with the finger bones in the mouth cavity. The knees were bent as in a effort to force open the lid, there were also parallel scratches where Rosa had tried to claw her way out of the casket.
In a puplic statement pathologists said: “How Dr Stoppolini came by this knowledge is irrelevant. We must agree with him that Rosa Spadoni was buried in a coma when vital signs were undetectable and that she awakened in her coffin beyond human help!”
