Unclaimed Body


This story was told to me by my sister taking up medicine in a famous University in Cavite, Philippines.

They are on there first year, first semester. They are studying anatomy. They were assigned one cadaver per group of eight students. Those cadavers that they are using are unclaimed body from the hospital morgue, usually accident victims or murdered victims. Those bodies were soaked in formalin for about ninety days to preserve the body while waiting for a family member to claim the body.

They were on the middle part of the semester when they saw a piece of paper on the leg part of the cadaver containing a mobile number. One of her group mates called the number and asked who that person was because they found the phone number on the cadaver. The lady broke down in tears and asked if the cadaver had a tattoo, the description fit the description of the tattoo on the cadaver. The family claimed the cadaver on the same day. They had been looking for their father for more than four months because he never returned home.

The very odd thing is where the paper came from, since before the cadaver is preserved they are being washed and cleaned. They had been working on that cadaver for more than a month, why had they not seen the paper when they first turned the cadaver over?

Boy, oh, boy. What a touching story. What a good thing that this person who placed to call was not afraid of the response they MAY have gotten once to call was answered.
I tell you, though. The phone number COULD have been placed by a well meaning individual, or it COULD have been left when some one hurriedly did their job as quickly as possible to get on with someone, or something else.
Who knows? The important thing is that it was THERE, and someone was kind (or fool hearty, maybe THEY just dialed the number in jest, I do not know) enough to take it upon themselves, and NOT leave it to the professor to check into it.
Thank you.

Wow that is really creepy. It's like he wanted his family to stop worrying. It's better that they know he is in a better place than somewhere else other than home. ❤ Jasmin

Thank you very much sweetdudette for the creepy yet wonderful story. One of the many examples why we should believe there is more in this world than flesh, blood, steel and etc. A wonderful ending I'd have to say. Thank you again for the story and God bless.😁

Hello sweetdudette. Thanks for another good story, I enjoyed it. The only rational explanation would be that someone recognized the man and anonymously put the paper there so he could be identified. But then again, stranger things have happened. Take Care.

wow that was an awesome story...
Maybe the cadaver's spirits wants to go home. He wants to see his family...

Very good story, sweetdudette. And very strange! I have to say this one creeped me out a bit (as I am sure it did the students studying the body).
