Russia, 1852: Two Russian Jewish men left their town, to buy fish.
Around 10 days later their dead unrecognizable bodies were found around 20 kilometers from their chosen route. They were recognized by their clothes including their Tzizis.
A typical Aguna case was brought forward to the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the Tzemach Tzedek, who allowed the agunah who approached him, to remarry.
