Mount Carmel Cemetery

Hillside, Illinois

 

Resting place of Al Capone, various reputed Chicago gangsters, members of the high church and many good Italian families. The most talked about grave is that of Julia Buccola Petta, known as the Italian Bride. The exhumation of her grave over six years after burial revealed a body in "incorruptable" condition.
