Now DNA tests are supposed to be foolproof however today we reported on the story of a man who to all intents and purposes had been dead and buried, before suddenly walking through the door of the family home some two months later.
Apparently, the man from Kazakstan, was known to regularly wander off from home for a week or two at a time meant so no one took too much notice when he left home one morning in June.
It turns out that on the morning of his departure he met a man at a market in a nearby village who offered him a job, which he accepted.
However some days after his disappearance a badly burned body was found, which DNA tests concluded with 99.2% certainty, to be his remains.
An official death certificate was issued by the authorities.
A funeral was duly arranged and a wake held which was attended by friends and extended family.
Imagine the consternation of his family when after the work came to an end, he walked through the door large as life.
One of the family almost dropped dead of a heart attack from shock.
Neither the local police nor any other authorities have yet commented on the situation.
