‘Beneath-normal human existence:’ Thief steals from grave of ‘Wizard of Vienna’ Fred Causey had a lifelong love affair with the movie The Wizard of Oz. He, as so many do, grew up watching it. And he filled his home in Vienna, two hours south of Atlanta, with thousands of pieces of memorabilia from the film. The 65-year-old loved opening his home to share it all with children and with everyone else in Vienna, where he had lived all his life until his death on Christmas Day 2014. Causey was buried at the Vienna City Cemetery. But someone recently went to his grave site and stripped it bare. Personal items, including the Wizard of Oz stepping stones, flowers, even the headstone – gone.
