Man Shocks His Family By Turning Up Two Months After His Funeral
A grieving family were left reeling when their 'dead' uncle rocked up two months after his funeral, which, I think you'll agree is entirely understandable.
Sixty-three-year old Aigali Supugaliev, from the village of Tomarly in Kazakhstan was reported missing on 9 July this year.
Fast-forward two months, a decomposed body was found near to his home and a post-mortem DNA test carried out. The test found that the likelihood of it being Supugaliev was 99.92 percent, which is the highest percentage such a test can give, meaning the family were left with little doubt that their uncle had passed.
Following the test, a death certificate was issue and his brother Esengali set about arranging a fitting send-off.
He was buried in a Muslim ceremony and a wake was held for family and friends.
So, try and wrap your head around their shock when good ol' Supugaliev turned up two months later very much alive.
Speaking to local press Esengali said: "When Aigali came home alive and healthy, my daughter Saule, seeing her 'dead' uncle, almost collapsed with a heart attack.
"The DNA analysis had confirmed this was my brother.
"We believed the results and conducted all the funeral and memorial rites.
"I spent so much money on it. But it is not even about the money.
"Who have we buried? Maybe his relatives are looking for this person."
Proving himself to not only be some sort of miracle, Supugaliev also showed that he's got good banter by posing for a photo holding his gravestone. Nice touch.
When asked by his family where he'd been for the past four months, he explained that he had been working on a 'distant farm' and hadn't thought to inform his family.
Sister-in-law Aiman Supugalieva added: "Glory to Allah that he returned alive, but we are going to prosecute the experts who gave such a DNA result."
According to local reports, the DNA test had used nail clippings.
And the scientist who conducted the test, Akmaral Zhubatyrova, pointed out that the test isn't 100 percent accurate, saying: "It is impossible to state unequivocally that this is the body of a person, relying only on the results of the DNA examination.
"We should not forget about the remaining 0.08 percent."
Well, I think this family certainly won't be forgetting about it.
