Family finds wrong man in casket

METRO

CHEHALIS, Wash. – A mourning family in Chehalis is in shock after opening their dead relative’s casket and seeing a stranger.

The bodies of Jerry Moon and another man were switched accidentally before the funeral on Monday.

Moon was mistakenly cremated and the other man was dressed in Moon’s clothes and put in the casket.

The mix-up likely happened when the funeral home took possession of Moon’s body.
