A Washington, D.C., family says their grandmother’s body has apparently been lost after they arrived at her viewing to find a different deceased woman in the casket.

“I saw the body of another female that wasn’t my grandmother,” Tawana Murphy told News4’s Pat Collins. “My heart dropped. I was in disbelief.”

Virginia Gray, 83, lost consciousness Feb. 19 at her home on Dix Street NE and was taken to the Prince George’s Hospital Center, where she later died.

Gray was a lifelong D.C. resident who had a daughter, four grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

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.
