They Dug Up Her Body…What Investigators Found Left Them Baffled

Talk about a bizarre story…

The remains of Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster were exhumed last week.

Shockingly, her body was virtually completely intact.


When Sister Lancaster was buried, she was buried in a casket of simple wood with no exterior layer.

She had also not been embalmed.

Buried four years ago, it would only be natural for her body to be completely decomposed, but that was not the case.

David Hess associate professor in the Salt Lake Community College mortuary science department was baffled.

He stated, “If the body was not embalmed, and it was still intact after four years, that one kind of throws me.

“I would have expected the body to be decomposed, maybe not all the way down to bone, but at least severely decomposed.”

Bishop Vann Johnston of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph added, “The condition of the remains of Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster has understandably generated widespread interest and raised important questions.

“At the same time, it is important to protect the integrity of the mortal remains of Sister Wilhelmina to allow for a thorough investigation.”

He continued, “I invite all the faithful to continue praying during this time of investigation for God’s will in the lives of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles; for all women religious; and all the baptized in our common vocation to holiness, with hope and trust in the Lord.”

How do you explain that one?
