Vampires in Venice?

I saw this on the Lex and thought it was interesting.  :)

BBC had a feature on vampires in Venice. Apparently some people believed that the plague was caused by vampires because blood sometimes dribbled from the mouths of some who had the disease.

Scientists in Italy have found the skull of a woman with a brick in her mouth, suggesting she may have been considered a vampire.
The skull, discovered in Venice, dates from the middle ages and the brick was probably an attempt to prevent her rising from the grave.

See this vid of a "Vampire of Venice Skull Found" here.
