PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The family of 50-year-old Sharolyn Jackson was overjoyed to learn that, 13 days after they held a funeral and burial, Jackson is, in fact, alive.
The services were held August 3rd after the Philadelphia Medical Examiner had signed a death certificate for Jackson and a body, thought to be hers, was laid to rest.
Then, last Friday, Jackson showed up at a Mental Health Facility.
Her family was elated, but an investigation has now been opened to determine who is buried in the grave thought to be hers.
So far, city officials say they know the body is that of an unidentified woman who was found dead from natural causes July 20thon a West Philadelphia street, her body taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office.
