Perelachaise cemetery, one of Claux haunts. Sometimes he would go in broad daylight,
with his set of grave-robbing tools, and look for graves to desecrate.

France has many such places in cemeteries all over, and can be very elaborate.
Claux would break into tombs and take pieces of bodies back to his apartment.

Inside the morgue at St. Joseph's. Claux worked as a morgue attendant,
and was left alone with bodies to perform his job, such as sewing up incisions done during autopsy.
Claux would sometimes remove pieces and eat them, or take them home for later.
