The body of the father – 93-year-old Clarence Bight, was stolen from Gethsemane Cemetery, coffin included and was discovered stuffed in a new freezer in the 48-year-old son’s basement, according to Detroit police.
The son had reportedly told family members that he stole his father’s body from Gethsemane Cemetery on the city’s east side this week to resurrect him through prayer, the source said.
Investigators had searched the son’s home, but didn’t find the man or the casket. The new freezer had been empty in the backyard Monday, the source said.
A Detroit Police officer on patrol the following day spotted the van at a gas station on the city’s east side, with the son and another man inside, along with the empty casket. The men were taken into custody.
When police returned to the man’s home, they found the body, Detroit Police Sgt. Eren Stephens said.
Oh my. Why might some people be so delusional as to think they can perform such a supernatural miracle? I may have just answered my own question. Delusion.
