Evita Peron

Evita Peron died July 26, 1952, of uterine cancer in Buenos Aires. Her body was stolen by anti-Peronistas in 1955 and hidden in Italy until 1971. In 1974, Evita's remains were returned to Argentina for burial in the presidential crypt. But two years following that, they were transferred to lie beneath several protective layers of steel in the Duarte family's tomb, at Recoleta cemetery in Buenos Aires.
