LEXINGTON, Miss. - The nephew of the Mississippi man who woke up in a body bag late last month says he is once again dead.

Eddie Hester tells WJTV his uncle, Walter "Snowball" Williams passed away at his home around 2 a.m. Thursday morning.

Hester joked, telling the Holmes County Coroner to "be sure this time."

On February 27 workers at the funeral home found Williams alive and kicking when they opened a body bag.

The coroner's office called it a miracle that the 78-year-old came back to life.

Authorities say they think Williams' pacemaker stopped working, then started again.
