A man accused of stealing his father’s body from a Detroit cemetery with the hope of bringing him back to life has pleaded guilty in exchange for avoiding prison.
Vincent Bright, 49, stole the body of 93-year-old Clarence Bright from Gethsemane cemetery on 14 January and stored it in a home freezer.
Police, acting on a tip from other family members, found the corpse in Bright’s home on Detroit’s east side. Police said Bright took the body in the hope his father would be resurrected.
No word here on why or how he thought it would be resurrected. That’s ACTUALLY never happened before so why he thought so in this case, I don’t know. He plead guilty but was found mentally competent. Perhaps just distraught?
