Grandmothers Body Switched at Illinois Funeral Home!
Grandmothers Body Switched at Ill. Funeral Home
"STICKNEY, Ill. - A family from suburban Chicago arrived at a funeral home to view their 91-year-old grandmother's body but found another woman's body in the casket instead.
The family of Lillian Grogan says the stranger was wearing their grandmother's dress and favorite bracelet at Mount Auburn Funeral Home in Stickney on Monday..."
Apparently they Mrs Grogan and another woman were tagged incorrectly at the funeral home. Mrs Grogan was actually buried (in this other womans grave possibly?) and they had to exhume her.
I lost my grandmother just recently and I can't even begin to imagine how horrible this would be for the families.

That is the worst thing I have heard in a long time. It is bad enough for the family that they lost their grandma but to then find a stranger in her casket and that grandma was already buried?
