(Detroit, MI)  —  Prosecutors in Michigan’s Wayne County are deciding whether to file charges against a man who stole his dead father’s body with hopes of a resurrection. Police in Detroit say they found the 93-year-old Clarence Bright’s remains earlier this week in a freezer at his son’s home following the discovery of the casket. They believe the son and another man took Bright’s coffin home last weekend from the Gethsemane [[ geth-SEM-uh-nee ]] Cemetery mausoleum. It was being kept there until a proper burial could take place due to wet grounds. At least one report says the 48-year-old son was hoping to bring his father back by praying.
