The plaque some believe represented the final resting place of the late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury is gone. 

The UK's Daily Mirror just reported the discovery of the memorial marker at Kensal Green cemetery in West London last week.  The bronze plaque included the inscription "In Loving Memory of Farrokh Bulsara," which was the singer's given name, along with dates that match Mercury's birth and death and the phrase "Always To Be Close To You With All My Love" - written in French.  It was signed with the letter "M.," which fans believe is Freddie's longtime friend and heir Mary Austin. 

Some also suspect Austin removed the plaque after its existence was made public. 

Mercury was cremated after his death in November 1991, and Austin has admitted to knowing what was done with his ashes.  But she's also said she promised Freddie that she would never reveal the location of his remains, and she intends to keep her word.
