Dead Woman-Man? Left Behind
Indianapolis police say construction workers renovating a former funeral home found a body that had been left behind in a casket, The Indianapolis Star reports.
The workers told police Tuesday that they found the casket inside the vacant building that was undergoing renovation for a new tenant.
The Star says the Marion County coroner's office is trying to determine the identity of the deceased.
WISH-TV notes that a former funeral home director found guilty of forgery had operated in the same area before losing his license in 2008, but it was not immediately clear if there is a connection to the misplaced body.
