On November 14, when Mr. Li visited the tomb, he was shocked that his wife’s body and all jewelry buried with her went missing. He contacted the police who found that it’s Kang’s parents that altered the tomb.

To be specific, Kang’s body was performed a ritual as a ghost bride to a ghost groom. The man was dead in a car crash when he hadn’t got married. The two families believed by holding a marriage and burying them together, their daughter and son would become wife and husband in their after-life.

Kang's body would be buried together with her new ghost husband.

As the ritual relates to religious belief in certain areas in China, the local police refused to investigate the case further on Mr. Li’s request.

Responding to the local media, Kang’s mother felt she was angry when knowing Li had moved all his family graves but let her daughter there alone.

'You moved your family graves and left my daughter's grave there. If I can't move her grave, I have to get her out of there. I can't let her be a lonely ghost in the wild.'
