TRENTON - A Philadelphia woman has been found alive, two weeks after her family held a funeral for her in Hamilton.
Sharolyn Jackson's family, who live in the Trenton area, thought they buried her at Colonial Memorial Park on August 3, but she showed up at a mental health facility in Philadelphia last week.
The 50-year-old’s family members identified the body through photos. Her father, David Minney, says that no one noticed it wasn’t her, even with an open casket at the funeral.
Family members said they noticed a difference in the nose but thought it may have been a result of the embalming process.
The medical examiner in Philadelphia believes the woman buried in Hamilton died of heat stroke. The body will be exhumed in an effort to properly identify the woman.
