A 48-year-old Detroit man is in police custody after stealing his father’s (Clarence Bright, 93) corpse from a cemetery and hiding it in a freezer in the basement of his home.
The unidentified man was able to steal the body from the cemetery after his father’s burial was postponed due to rain. According to Fox 2 News Detroit, the man allegedly stole the body because he believed he could resurrect him. The man was arrested along with another man when officers found them at a nearby gas station with an empty casket in their van.
As bizarre as this sounds, Bright’s funeral went as planned according to reports.
