A man was arrested in Knoxville, Tennessee this week for damaging a cemetery while trying to raise the dead.
The strange turn of events began when authorities in Knoxville responded to reports of vandalism that was actively taking place at a cemetery on Huckleberry Springs Road at around 2:30pm on Monday.
When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered a chaotic spectacle - someone had been breaking gravestones and digging up the ground in various spots as if looking for something.
The culprit was eventually identified as 34-year-old Danny Frazier - a homeless man who witnesses had previously seen living within the vicinity of the cemetery.
When quizzed about his actions, Frazier told police that he had been attempting to 'resurrect' his deceased grandmother who is buried somewhere nearby.
Exactly how he intended to perform this 'resurrection' remains unclear.
He was later charged with criminal trespassing and vandalism for causing $30,000 worth of damage.
