So John Delaney goes missing in London, England, in April, 2000. Three years later, a body is found, which is identified as being John. His family have a funeral and cremate the body.
Fast forward to the present. John’s son, called John Renehan, is now 42 years old. He’s watching a television program one day about missing people. While watching that show, he recognizes his dad.
Apparently, that wasn’t his dad that was found and cremated. His dad somehow had a bout of amnesia, and since the cops couldn’t find out any information about him, they turned him over to social services. They gave him a new name, David Harrison.
The police don’t know who’s body was found. I hope they have a DNA sample saved somewhere, because they won’t be getting any more samples.
