It wasn’t just Evita who had some posthumous adventures.
In July 1987, thirteen years after his death, the Peronist Justicialist Party received an anonymous letter that claimed that [Juan] Perón’s hands had been removed from his tomb along with his army cap and sword; the letter demanded that the party pay an US$8 million ransom for their return. When authorities checked Perón’s tomb, they discovered that it had indeed been broken into and the hands and other items removed. Forensic experts who examined the body said the mutilation had occurred only a short time before the discovery. One source states that the tomb was broken into on June 23, 1987, and that a poem written to him by his last wife, Isabel, had also been removed from the tomb. At the time, some news reports stated that the hands had been removed with “a surgical instrument,” but later reports state that the dismemberment had been done with an electric saw.
The ransom was never paid, no suspects were charged, and the hands were never recovered.
