I read the Kobold Quarterly blog and they just put up a post about "Strigoi"
Go here to read it. I'll wait.
It's not the post that bugs me; it's that little part at the end...
Here's a similar bit from Wikipedia --
One gypsy remedy for killing a strigoi is as follows: dig up the vampire corpse, remove its heart(s), and cut the organ in two. Drive a nail into the forehead, place a clove of garlic under the tongue, and smear the body with the fat of a pig killed on St. Ignatius’s Day and rebury it facedown so as to send it to hell if it were to reawaken.There are more examples, but honestly, I don't think this kind of thing qualifies as PI.
