Woman Buried Alive, Funeral Goers Hear Screams From The Grave

You are at a funeral, grieving the loss of your son when suddenly you hear screams coming from the coffin.

2011, COFFIN

That is what happened to a Chicago family.

They were saying their last goodbyes when they heard screaming coming from their sons coffin. They said,  “We decided to stay for a bit after the funeral, to let it all sink in. When all of a sudden we heard screams, but we could not figure out where they were coming from,” said one family member who wished to stay anonymous. “We realized it was coming from under the grave where we just laid my brother. We ran and got help.”

This would have to be on of my WORST NIGHTMARES. I cannot even imagine the fear and adrenaline that would have been running through them.


Police say when firefighters arrived, they received permission from the family to dig up the freshly dug grave. As they did, the screams became louder and louder.

When they reached the coffin, they pried it open, to find 34 year old Linda Lynch inside.

Police say it was a twisted plot. The coffin of the man, who was supposed to be buried, was wheeled to the back and his body was quickly removed after the service by the funeral director, Harold Lynch, at Thomas Hite Funeral Home, who had attempted to murder his 34 year old estranged wife.

Lynch had drugged his wife with arsenic and hid her in the funeral home, perfectly timing it with the scheduled burial.  The young man who was scheduled to be buried was found wrapped in a blanket in the funeral home basement.

I think this has to be one of the most disturbing things I have ever read.

What would you do if it happened to you?
