To be honest I’m surprised this doesn’t happen more often. CBS Detroit reports:
A man accused of stealing his father’s body from a Detroit cemetery with the hope of bringing him back to life has pleaded guilty in exchange for avoiding prison.
Bright, then 48, stole the body of 93-year-old Clarence Bright from Gethsemane Cemetery on Jan. 14, just hours before it was to be buried, and stored it in a home freezer. Police, acting on a tip from other family members, found the corpse in Vincent Bright’s home on Detroit’s east side.
Police said Vincent Bright is religious and took the body in hopes his father would be resurrected.
