Why would want them after this?


CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — A Tennessee man’s body is being exhumed to remove dentures that belong to another man after a mix-up at a Chattanooga hospital.

Parkridge Medical Center spokeswoman Alison Counts told The Chattanooga Times Free Press that the body of 76-year-old Kenneth Ray Manis will be exhumed after his family learned the dentures belonged to an intensive care patient who shared the same hospital room.

Seems it would be cheaper to pay for new ones than the cost of digging up the body and reburial.

Puts a new spin on gold digger.
