Around the 1900s, in the village of Amarasesti, located in Romania, in the northern part of Dolj [in the region known as Oltenia], a very old woman, the mother of Dinu Gheorghita and his brother, died.
After some months the children of her eldest son began to die, one after the other, and after that, the children of her youngest son.
The two brothers were convinced that their mother had become a vampire, so one night they opened her grave, cut her in two, and buried her again.
But the deaths continued, so they dug her up a second time. They were shocked to find that the two halves had grown together again. The body was whole and without a wound.
They took the corpse to a forest where they removed her heart, from which fresh blood was flowing.
They cut the heart in four pieces and burnt it. Then they also cremated the corpse.
The ashes were gathered and reburied in the grave. And the ashes of the heart were taken home and mixed with water, so that they could be drunk by the victims.
From that moment the deaths ended.
“Amarasesti” may in fact be the present-day “Armasesti” or “Marasesti”.
You will find this case mentioned in various books, like: Tudor Pamfile`s “Dusmani si Prieteni ai Omului” [Friends and Foes of the Man], Montague Summers`s “The Vampire in Europe”, Adrien Cremene`s “Mythology of the vampire in Romania”
