Police Sgt. Eren Stephens said officers discovered the body of the man in a new freezer in the basement of his 48-year-old son's home early Tuesday morning after he allegedly took the corpse and casket from Gethsemane Cemetery Monday, the Detroit Free Press reported Tuesday.

Investigators said the body was taken Monday morning, two days after the funeral. The body was being kept in a mausoleum because the ground was too wet for burial.

The 48-year-old allegedly told family members Monday he stole the body to resurrect his father through prayer.

The son was taken into custody, but charges against him were not released.
