A 24-year-old woman from London is currently recovering from one of the most bizarre scene’s you only hear about in movies.
A European family was grieving the loss of their son, as they said their final goodbye’s at his funeral. Police say it was unlike anything they had ever seen before. Reports say that approximately 15 minutes after the body of the man was laid to rest, the family of the deceased began to hear screams.
“We decided to stay for a bit after the funeral, to let it all sink in. When all of a sudden we heard screams, but we could not figure out where they were coming from,” said one family member who wished to stay anonymous. “We realized it was coming from under the grave where we just laid my brother. We ran and got help.”
Police say as soon as fire fighters arrived at the scene, they received permission from the family to dig up the freshly dug grave. As they did, the screams became louder and louder.
When they reached the coffin, they carefully opened the casket, and found 24-year-old Amanda Henderson inside.
Police say it was a twisted plot. The coffin of the man, who was supposed to be buried, was wheeled to the back and his body was quickly removed after the service by the funeral director, Mario Heags, at Royal James Funeral Home, who had attempted to murder his 24-year-old estranged wife.
Heags had drugged his wife with Molly and hid her in the funeral home, all while perfectly timing it with the scheduled burial. The young man who was scheduled to be buried was found wrapped in a blanket in the funeral home’s basement.
Mario’s wife is currently being hospitalized, and is in stable condition undergoing an intense detoxification process. Heags is being held on a €500,000 bond and faces attempted murder charges. As for the London family, they were thankfully able to have a proper burial for their son.
