How do these people keep getting mislaid?

In an effort to avoid any kind of carpark-burial-style shenanigans, Spain is searching for the remains of Don Quixote author Miguel de Cervantes. The writer died in poverty in 1616, and while they know the date of his death—April 22nd, 1616—no one is sure exactly where he is buried, other than somewhere on the grounds of Madrid's Convent of Trinitarians. According to the BBC, forensic scientists are focusing on searching the grounds and walls of the oldest part of the convent, using equipment that maps objects underground. The search is expected to cost approximately 100,000 euros.
