Composers' teeth stolen? Strauss, Brahms graves may have been robbed of decomposing remains
Thomas Vecsey of the state prosecutor's office says authorities are considering filing charges against a man suspected of breaking into the Vienna graves of Austrian waltz king Johann Strauss Jr. and German Romantic composer Johannes Brahms and taking their teeth.
Vecsey said Friday that suspicions first arose in 2008 but investigators determined that any crime fell outside Austria's statute of limitations. New evidence other graves might have been disturbed has led to the probe's reopening.
The Austria Press Agency said prosecutors are eyeing a person of interest.
