Whether it's bored teenagers, grave robbing, or murder, nothing good happens in cemeteries at night. While most graveyard lore deals with ghouls, ghosts, and demonic possessions, sometimes the scariest things to happen in graveyards have nothing to do with the supernatural. People find a lot of scary things there - and not just dead bodies.
Maybe graveyards are the perfect place to commit a crime because spooky stories of graveyards keep most people out. But the criminals in the following cases weren't as stealthy as they thought, as they were all eventually caught for their cemetery crimes. So while these stories have nothing to do with ghosts, there are still plenty of horrible crimes committed in graveyards that are equally as scary.
