A family in China has sold the corpse of their deceased adult daughter as a ‘ghost bride’ after digging it from her tomb, reported local media.

The body of Kang Cuicui, who died 12 years ago, was sold for £9,200 and ‘married’ to a deceased man as an ancient betrothal ritual in northern China’s Hebei Province.

The custom of Yin Hun, or ‘ghost marriages’, has been practised in China for thousands of years by believers who claim it ensures the unmarried dead are not alone in the afterlife and brings good luck to the future generations.

The incident was brought to light in a Thursday report by state newspaper Orient Today to investigate the tradition that is still conducted by villagers in Huanghua, Cangzhou.

Ms Kang killed herself in 2008 after having an argument with her husband, Li Zhong.

Mr Li and his family spent 100,000 yuan (£11,572) on throwing a grand funeral for his deceased wife before burying her in a tomb with gold jewellery.

When visiting Ms Kang’s grave on November 14, they were shocked to find the tomb had been altered while the woman’s dead body and buried goods had been stolen.
