Man steals father's corpse; Plans to resurrect it through prayer

The Detroit man accused of stealing his father’s corpse from a cemetery in order to resurrect it was ordered this morning to undergo a competency exam.

Vincent Bright, 48, will return to 36th District Court in Detroit in March for a hearing on the exam results. Wayne County prosecutors charged him with disinterment of a body. Bright could get up to 10 years in prison upon conviction.

Investigators said Bright went to Gethsemane Cemetery in the 10700 block of Gratiot on Jan.14 and removed his 93-year-old father's body from a casket near a burial site. According to a Detroit police source, Bright told relatives that he stole his father's body to resurrect him through prayer.

Police found Clarence Bright's body the next day, stuffed inside a freezer in his son's basement.

Several of Bright’s relatives and friends attended the hearing today. At one point, a woman shouted from the audience, “We love you, Vincent.” He waved, lifting his shackled arms.

Allen Harris, 48, of Detroit, said he has known Vincent Bright since kindergarten. He said Bright helps the community and called him a “good person.”

Religion is a powerful drug.

Very sad. Fucked up with grief and deluded by the promises of religion, this guy really shouldn't serve time.

Agree. This guy is just going through a bad grief period.

If he's having problems accepting the death of his father then perhaps the best thing to do is to let him have his father's body and try to resurrect it. After days of unsuccessful prayer he may eventually come to terms with reality.

Seems Vincent wasn't too Bright after all.

Funny how religious superstition is deemed perfectly acceptable and sane in most circumstances, yet is grounds for a competency exam in others.

I love when people like r8 who are trying to make themselves look smarter than somebody else actually end up making themselves look dumber.
