After his death Che Guevara's body was mutilated, identified, buried, lost found, identified again and finally interred in a mausoleum in Cuba. And some other stuff too.

I imagine most folk already know he was executed after being captured by Bolivian forces in 1967. What I only just discovered was that his body was displayed to the world by the Bolivians a day later. pictures, courtesy of wikipedia.

Witnesses were flown in to assert that he was Che Guevara, and hundreds of Bolivians came to pay homage, reputedly taking locks of his hair as relics. His hands were cut off and taken to Buenos Aires for fingerprint identification before being sent to Cuba. He was buried in an unmarked mass grave.

In 1995, however, a former Bolivian general revealed their location and a huge search was organised. His remains were found by Cuban archaeologists (identified by the lack of hands, and by a small bag of pipe tobacco in his jacket pocket) and taken back to Cuba where it, and the other bodies found, were interred with full military honours in a specially built mausoleum.

Felix Rodriguez, the man sent by the CIA to train and oversee the team of agents assigned to catch Guevara, who was present at his capture and interrogated him personally, took Che's Rolex as a trophy. He still wears it, and takes pleasure in showing it off.

I don't think of myself a a revolutionary. I've never considered Che a personal hero or icon. In fact I only grudginly call myself a socialist. But the pictures of him layed out like that made me think 'No more heroes, any more.'

Granted the man himself was esoteric about the revolution being immortal and the individual being a small and in some ways arbitrary part. Remember the idea not the man. Tell you what that will result in; Lots of unnecessary death.

tl; dr: He fought the law, and the law won.
