A Virginia funeral home made a grave mistake with one man’s body, reports the New York Daily News.

A Fairfax funeral home incorrectly buried Joseph Chapman, 80, in the wrong plot and put a different man on display for the wake, according to reports.

The mortician’s mixup only came to light as the furious son Jim McLean realized that the dead man in front of him was not his dad.
