    This is a good example of why even though they are pretty sure a body is or may be a missing person, they wait for DNA results. Wow!

    This is so weird. Did family identify her? Did she have an open casket? So strange.

    The body was identified by Sharolyn's son and she had an open casket viewing attended by her parents, 4 sons and daughter.

    The body received a funeral was buried and weeks later dug up and returned to the morgue as a unidentified body. Hopefully, she will soon rest in peace.

    Definitely a VERY unusual story.

    It sounds like the family didn't see her a lot (which could have played into the misidentification:

    Odd that one was missing and one died and they looked so similar that they're saying they could have been sisters (by appearance):

    The whole thing is strange.

    Excerpt from:

    Rumors Of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

    When I die, will they remember not
    What I did, but what I haven't done?
    It's not the end that I fear with each breath
    It's life that scares me to death.

    Weird story and everytime I see this headline I think "someone is fighting over the funeral and embalming charges".

    Maybe the city will cough up the dough? But if the family IDENTIFIED her then maybe not?

    Open casket would be pricey.

    Is this a case of someone being late to her own funeral?
