I'm reminded of the meeting between Josey Wales and Ten Bears in the movie "The Outlaw Josey Wales". The Comanche chief told Wales, "There is iron in your words of death". It looks like a cartel boss in Ecuador went one step further when he took the iron, and his death, to the grave. The New York Post reports:
A murdered Ecuadorian cartel boss known as “El Fatal” was buried with hundreds of pistols, shotguns and rifles in his coffin so he could be “armed to the teeth in the afterlife.”
Now-viral images show Sevillano in an open casket as people rush to fill it with high-caliber weapons — reportedly so that he would be “armed to the teeth in the afterlife and could defend himself.”

I suppose there's a risk that a rival cartel, short of weapons, will dig up "El Fatal" and relieve him of his afterlife arsenal. That will provoke retaliation, of course, and counter-retaliation, and . . .
If his grave remains undisturbed, with all that metal buried in his casket, it'll definitely be a case of "rust in peace"!
