Carl Tanzler was no doubt a mystery, a German born radiologist , who would fall head over heels for his 21 year old tuberculosis patient, Elena De Hoyos in 1933, Tanzler would continue this attraction even in her death. Carl would live with the young woman's mummified body for several years, until he was finally discovered by Elena's sister. Leading to one of the most bizarre cases of necrophilia acts committed in the 20th century. It begs the question does love, or better yet obsession, really conquer all?
