Body that ‘vanished’ from mortuary gets found in Volta Region village

The burial and funeral rites of a 95-year-old woman were put on hold as the family members who had gone to retrieve the body at the morgue were unable to find it.

According to, the deceased was supposed to be buried on July 11, 2020, but that was not to be as the body could not be located on July 10, 2020 at the mortuary.

Source also revealed that, mourners went to the hospital (name withheld) in the Volta Region to claim the corpse but mortuary attendants said they could not locate it.

A family source said: “Eventually, we had to return home not knowing what to do next. The body was deposited at the facility about four months to the time we had gone there to retrieve it, and we were sure of where exactly it was kept so everybody was shocked that the body could not be found.”

After all hopes of finding the 95-year-old’s body were lost, the family got a call that the remains had been claimed and buried in another village by an unknown individual.

The body was finally exhumed and returned to its rightful owners for burial.
