Unlike the graves of history's heroes and legends, the final resting places of criminals are not places of somber celebration and in many cases are purposely not easy to find. Often the worst criminals won't even have a grave site, instead having their families opt for cremation so that they don't have to face a lifetime of morbid vandalism. Many notorious criminal legends pass away while incarcerated and are buried in unmarked graves on prison grounds.

There are criminals whose actions have grown into folklore and legend or who are so intrinsically linked to a moment in history that their eternal resting place does hold value. These are the graves of those criminals.
