You people gasp over the littlest things for crying out loud.It's the same as viewing a body during the wake so, lighten up. Geez !!
I don't think you'd want to see these bodies. The hit the ground around 170 MPH.

he died imedietly but ther are rummors about him killing the pilot
Who's gonna kill a pilot while they're flying the plane? It would've been suicide. And if someone wants to commit suicide why would they take 3 others out w/ them? Don't even make sense.

Ive read that there is footage of the big bopper being taken from the grave and being checked for fail play it was filmed but only the big boppers son and family have footage only they can realese it the whole main purpose to bring the big bopper up was to finalise if there was any foul play regarding the gun found at the scene after..which the farmer fired to see if it was functional but why aint any footage been shown on tv as of yet of the tests and proof of no foul plain i sooner keep my eyes out waiting a fly on the wall documentary soon to come on tv explaining it all lets hope its soon as its driving me insane the images of the the big boppers dead body was meant to be in the same preserved state when buried in 1959 buddy holly richie valens the big bopper all brought there style to the table in diffrent ways very inspiring yet start of there career they all would have been more famous so many songs we sooner may never know what they would have produced unforuntaly they was called from god for other dutys but i thank them for there inspiration in my life :-)
This is false. He was dug up because he had to be moved to another part of the cemetery that allowed upright stones rather then flat ones. But since he was being dug up anyway his son had 2 questions. Did he survive crash & was he shot. Dr who dug him up did x-rays & said he was broken from top to bottom so he died instantly & no he wasn't shot.

While they were setting x-ray machine up son who never met him spent about an hour visiting w/ his dad. In the video all you can see is the casket w/ son standing next to it. You can't see the Big Bopper.

A fresh dead body, depending how they died, looks like nothing more then a person sleeping. One that's been buried almost 5 decades probably don't look so pretty.
