'Dead' woman not so dead!

A Brazilian woman shocked her family by turning up alive and well a week after her own funeral.
Relatives of 18-year-old Maria Fabiana Franco thought she was a ghost and wouldn't let her in the house.

Miss Franco, from Vitoria, had been missing for two weeks when her sister wrongly identified the body of a young woman as being her.
Adriana Lacerda, the sister, said: "The dead woman was identical to my sister. They even had the same scar on the same eyebrow!"

I do like this type of story. But I really do like the ending ....

Miss Franco told police she had run away with her boyfriend but had to return home after he was arrested.
