The Source:

John V.A. Fine, Jr. :
"In defense of Vampires"
in Alan Dunde's "The Vampire - A Casebook"
University of Wisconsin Press, USA, 1998

The Case:

This case was found among some episcopal correspondence from the year of 1838. A couple of priests had been sent to a certain monastery for some time, by way of punishment for their involvement in a case of vampire slaying. They had allowed the villagers of Radujevac to dig up a corpse suspected of being a vampire. They had watched the opening of the grave, said some prayers, and then retreated. When they were gone, the villagers had cut up the corpse and poured barley and boiling wine into the dead man's intestines and then reburied it.

The Date:

If the events did not happen in 1838, they must have happened shortly before. Not to complicate things I will file this under 1838.

The Place:

Radujevac can be found West of Craiova (Romania) on the Serbian side of the river.

Possible Follow-Up:

Read John V.A. Fine's interesting article in Alan Dunde's book. He offers you much more information than I do.
