When Jure Grando died in 1656, he was buried in the village of Kringa, part of the Italian Republic of Venice. Days later, he was reported walking through the streets and knocking on doors. Legend has it a strigon would live off the blood of children and knock on the doors and windows of those who were destined to die early. Sixteen years later, the mayor decided to rid Kringa of him for good. When his grave was opened, his corpse was fully intact. After being decapitated with an axe, blood poured from the corpse, and he was considered officially dead for the second time.
