Historical: Serial killers Burying Victims Alive

Hi,

I'm writing a case fic where a killer is burying his victims alive. Motives aside, I'm looking for references of historical crimes of this but needed them to be before the 20th century. My searches, however, have been coming up with the same few modern search results or references to saints Chrysanthus and Daria as there were new discoveries. I'm a bit overwhelmed and hoping this community can help me.

SEARCH TERMS USED:
murder buried alive
serial buried alive
famous crimes buried alive

SITES SEARCHED:
Wikipedia
Murder-pedia
http://themanyfacesofdeath.blogspot.com
BBC News

RESULTS GOT BUT NOT HELPFUL:
Rapist buried alive in Boliva
Premature burials
Accidental burials
Safety coffins
Duns Scotus
thanatomimesis
Cholera
fear of buried alive
Saints Chrysanthus and Daria

LOOKING FOR:
specific pre-20th Century crimes of victims buried alive to use as historical references, but not pivotal to story's plot, just for conversation content. This question is not region specific. Just anything before the 20th century.

I know I just threw a lot of information out there and this is crazy specific, but I am at a loss at finding what I need.
