Hidden away in a quiet corner of Toronto's High Park, you'll find a massive tomb surrounded by a very old fence. John and Jemima Howard who donated the land for High Park are buried near Colborne Lodge in a ten-tonne tomb he designed.  And how it ended up there is a morbid tale of grave robbers, shipwrecks and death.
