Family finds wrong body in casket

STICKNEY, IL Relatives of Lillian Grogan say the stranger was even wearing her dress and favorite bracelet Monday at Mount Auburn Funeral Home in the nearby Chicago suburb of Stickney.

Grogan had been mistakenly buried. Her family got a court order Tuesday to have her body exhumed for reburial.

Granddaughter Michele Grogan of Burbank calls it "the worst day of all of our lives."

Service Corporation International of Houston, owner of the funeral home, is working to resolve the issue to both families' satisfaction, a spokeswoman said Wednesday.
