In May 1978 24-year-old Roman Wardas from Poland and 38-year-old Gancho Ganev from Bulgaria demanded a ransom of $600.000 in return for the coffin. Oona Chaplin refused to deal with them saying "My husband is in heaven and in my heart". The thieves were arrested and the coffin was found buried in a nearby cornfield. (2 March 1978)
