Yesterday, the body of a 93-year-old man disappeared from a Detroit cemetery, to the horror of friends and family. Today, Detroit police discovered the man's body stuffed inside a freezer in his son's basement, where he was reportedly being kept until the son could resurrect him through prayer:
Next-door neighbor Gwendolyn Coleman, 50, said she has known the son... for about five years.
“He done lost it, for him to do something like that, take their father from the cemetery,” Coleman said. “That was wrong.”
She didn’t know the elder Bright. But she attended Saturday’s funeral to pay her respects to his son.
“At the funeral, he said, ‘Y’all might think I’m great, y’all might think I’m great’ — everybody heard that at the funeral,” explained Coleman, standing in front of the now-boarded front door of the man’s home. “Then he said, ‘Watch what I’m going to do, watch what I’m going to do.’ Everybody heard that — the whole family, too. We didn’t think he was going to do nothing like that, though.”
In all fairness to the son, it's unclear whether the resurrection was a failure or if police simply recovered the freezer body before the prayers had a chance to work.
