Body of Popular Gameshow Host Stolen

A regular visitor to the grave of popular Italian gameshow host, Mike Bongiorno, alerted police that the grave had been vandalized and emptied. Authorities say no ransom has been demanded as of yet. Bongiorno hosted Italy's top quiz show for over 50 years and helped launch commercial television in the country.

In 2001, the body of an investment banker was stolen and the thieves demanded a ransom. They were captured and prosecuted.
