    NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
    A woman who walked into a Nashville courtroom Wednesday to face shoplifting charges shouldn't have been there, or anywhere, according to official records.

    Sarah Moretti was accused of shoplifting at Dillard's in Rivergate, but as court workers looked into her record, they found out she was also arrested for shoplifting at the Macy's in Green Hills in 2011 and had never been prosecuted.

    And that's where this story gets strange.

    Moretti was set to face that charge in 2011 when something terrible happened: she died. At least, that's what a death certificate said.

    On May 5, 2011, at her grandmother's house in Glasgow, KY, Moretti committed suicide and was cremated four days later, the document states.

    But when Moretti appeared in the Nashville courtroom on Wednesday, the judge was faced with a strange motion.

    "What date do we have in mind on the motion to resurrect?" said Metro General Sessions Judge Casey Moreland.

    Moreland and his staff worked to figure out if the court even had the power to resurrect a person who was previously declared dead on an official document.

    But while court clerks were working, Moretti began to cut herself with a pen clip in the courtroom Wednesday. A court officer noticed her bleeding and she was placed under custody then removed to a hospital for evaluation.

    Moretti is due back in court next week to face the theft charges as well as charges related to her faking her own death.

    So the question is- who was cremated?

    Wow, that is super freaky. Sounds like the grandma must have assisted in this because it happened at her house and she would have likely been the one to identify the body. It's a shame the deceased was cremated but I can certainly see why it was done. I hope they took pics and fingerprints and such so maybe the case can be solved.
