Scott Cushnie, known as Professor Piano, went missing in August 2018, and for months his close friends, family and musical peers all executed search parties, plastering much of the area that he went missing a King and River Street to no avail.
Around the same time another family was trying to find a missing relative and in the bizarre case of mistaken identity, that family was subsequently contacted by the authorities regarding an elderly man who had died in hospital, after falling and injuring himself while walking downtown. The family identified the deceased as their missing relative and a funeral was held. But this past month, the man they believed they had buried reappeared — alive — leaving the police and chief coroner to determine the true identity of the body in the grave. With a strange twist, it was determined it was actually the beloved Professor Piano who was buried in error.
