Dead guy who wasn’t actually dead is finally dead — maybe

Remember Walter Williams, the Mississippi man who died but came back to life at the mortuary? Well, he’d dead. Allegedly.

If you don’t recall, here’s an abridged version of Walter’s original journey to heaven and back — The 78-year-old man was bagged up and shipped off to see a mortician after his family said their final goodbyes. The mortician called the family later that afternoon because “something didn’t seem right.” What didn’t seem right was that Walt was breathing.

Now, he’s really not breathing.

“They came and got him again around 4:15 a.m.,” Williams’ nephew, Eddie Hester, told CNN affiliate WAPT. “I think he’s gone this time.”

CNN learned about the death from Holmes County, Mississippi, coroner Dexter Howard. He was the same man who first declared Williams dead on February 26.

“There was no pulse. He was lifeless,” the coroner said then.

I’ll believe it when I’m not writing about him again in two weeks.
