Default Woman Turns Up 13 Days After Funeral

Posted Friday, August 23rd 2013 @ 3pm
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia woman has turned up alive nearly two weeks after her family held a funeral and burial.

KYW-TV reports that 50-year-old Sharolyn Jackson showed up at a mental health facility last Friday.

A body found July 20 on a Philadelphia street had been identified as Jackson. A spokesman for the Philadelphia Health Department says Jackson's son and a social worker who knows her viewed pictures of the body and identified it as being hers.

Services for Jackson were held Aug. 3.

The now-buried body will be exhumed in hopes of correctly identifying

I say we start a bible and tell the story of the Second Coming of Sharolyn...

Pretty bad when 2 people view the same pic and peg it as her.

I would have thought that a body could not be identified by a photo, but perhaps the sight of a body in a decayed enough condition may have been deemed too distressing. Seems strange though.

if she didn't have mental problems at the outset, she probably will when she learns her funeral already took place

That must have been an awkward mother, son reunion.

This represents such a terrible lost opportunity.

Had the woman just exercised a little patience for just a few weeks, she could have showed up on her family's doorstep on Halloween and said "boo!"

Quoted as saying," hey! Where's my good jewelry and best dress?"

Apparently she's been hospitalized with irrational delusions about how her family wanted her dead.

Destroys the heck out that saying, "If you don't go to your friends' funerals, they won't go to yours." I think Yogi Berra said something like that.
