At a viewing last Friday for 83-year-old grandmother Vivian Gray in Washington, D.C., family members discovered a major gaffe by the funeral home, NBC4 Washington reports.
Gray, who lost consciousness on Feb. 19 at her home, was rushed to a local hospital where she later passed away. Adding to the insult of Gray’s missing body, the clothes the grandchildren bought for their grandmother to wear were placed on the body of the unnamed deceased woman in the casket.
More from NBC4 Washington:
The grandchildren say when they walked into Gray’s viewing at Horton’s Funeral Home in Northwest last Friday, the woman in the casket was not Gray, but was wearing the clothes they previously brought to the funeral home for their grandmother.
“Lunacy is what it is. It’s unspeakable. I can’t — yeah, this is straight out of a bad script, a holiday script or something. I’ve never heard of anything like this,” said Gray’s grandson, Quentin Gray.
The news outlet attempted to obtain statements from the Prince George’s Hospital Center and Horton’s Funeral Home to no avail.
