The Toronto pianist Scott Cushnie, who went missing from his seniors apartment building in August, is believed to have died and been buried in a bizarre case of mistaken identity.
A local family who were searching for a missing relative received a call from a hospital abour an elderly man who died while walking downtown.
They assumed the deceased was theirs and organised a funeral.
Now, an exhumation is planned.
Scott, who had no family but many friends, was 80. Everybody called him Professor Piano.
