'Dead' man returns a year after wrong body is given to his wife in Japan  5 Days ago

Source:   USA Today  

OK. So imagine you have cremated your husband’s body, which was found in a river in your city. You enter a period of mourning and then begin to remake your life.

Now, imagine 11 months later, your supposedly dead husband walking through your front door.

That’s what happened to a Japanese woman who in June 2017 was given the body of a man, believed to be her husband, who had been found dead in the Edo River in eastern Toyko.

According to local media, the handover occurred after police examined missing persons reports, and suspected the body might be that of a man in his early 40s from Matsudo, a suburb of Tokyo, who had been reported missing by his family three days earlier

The matter seemed to be settled. And then the family earlier this month notified police that the man had returned alive in May. In revealing the case on Wednesday, police would not say where he had been or what he had been doing.

Authorities said the body, which turned out to be of another missing man in his late 30s, might have been misidentified because both men were about the same height and age. Corpses that are thought to be unrelated to crime are usually returned to the families only after visual inspections and without additional tests, the paper said.

After the mix-up, the police department subsequently found that a missing person's report on a Tokyo man in his 30s had been submitted to the force on the day the body was found. Fingerprints taken from the dead man’s hands confirmed this, according to the paper.

The police said they will hand over the cremated remains to the man’s family.
