Aigali Supugaliev, a man from Kazakhstan, was reported missing back in July. When nothing changed after two months, he was presumed dead...especially when a corpse was found near his home...and the DNA matched him to the tune of 99-point-92%. So it was quite a shock when he came walking through the door of his family home a couple of months after his funeral.
It turns out the family had buried the wrong guy! So where was Aigali really? He was apparently offered a four-month job on a farm far away, leaving without notifying his family members. When he came back despite the DNA testing, funeral and death certificate in his name, his niece nearly fainted.
So what of the DNA testing that supposedly proved he was dead? The scientist who carried out the test says that the 0-point-08 percent unlikelihood of a match is the key. “It is impossible to state unequivocally that this is the body of a person, relying only on the results of the DNA examination,” he adds.
