Family Opens Casket to Say Goodbye to Their Father, Find Wrong Body Instead

Casket

Jerry Moon of Longview, Washington passed away last week and his funeral was on Monday. But when the family opened the casket to say goodbye to dear old dad, it wasn’t him in the coffin.

Some other guy was in the casket instead, with a plastic bag on his head. (No word why the bag was tied around his head.)

Oh, he was in Jerry’s clothes and a picture of Jerry’s wife was tucked under his arm.

Once the family got things sorted out, it got even worse. Turns out this dead guy ended up at the mortuary at the same time as their dad, and the bodies got accidentally switched.

So, what happened to Jerry? They cremated him.

Want to guess what Jerry explicitly told his family he never wanted to happen to him? You guessed it, TO BE CREMATED!

There’s no word yet if the family will seek legal action. I sure would!
