As legend has it, sometime in the 1940s an anonymous man began an annual visit to the Edgar Allan Poe's grave, which is located in Baltimore. It was first reported back in 1949 by The Evening Sun. The mysterious visitor to writer's grave has failed to show up for the second year in a row.
The unknown person would leave three roses and a half-empty bottle of cognac at Poe's grave in the Westminster Hall and Burying Grounds each year on Poe's birthday. That tradition went on for some 60 years until this past year when the visitor failed to make an appearance.
Tuesday evening, fans of the writer waited all night at Poe's gravesite, hoping for a glimpse of the anonymous toaster, but he never showed. Most who attended last evening's watch say they will return next year and try again.
Wednesday is the 202nd anniversary of Poe's birth.
