The Mummies of Guanajuato are a number of naturally mummified bodies interred in a cemetery during a cholera outbreak in Mexico in 1833. The bodies appear to have been disinterred between 1865-1958. During that time a local tax was imposed requiring relatives to pay a fee to keep their relatives interred. If they were unable to pay, the bodies were disinterred. 90% of the remains were disinterred because of non-payment. Of these, only 2% had been naturally mummified.
