Archaeologists discover 'vampire' skeletons buried in gruesome Medieval ritual

Just in time for Halloween comes some more vampire news from Bulgaria.

Earlier this month, researchers found a skeleton with a stake through its heart in southern Buglaria. This time, a skeleton with its feet severed was discovered by archaeologists at a dig site at Voden Fortress, reports The Sofia Globe. A skeleton of a child was also found with its feet bound. Both remains are believed to be from the Middle Ages and were presumably buried this way so that they literally couldn't rise from the dead.

Pro tip for anyone encountering vampires tonight: Just tie the Count's shoelaces together.
