'Dead' man turns up at the door after wrong body cremated

Tokyo police admitted they handed over the wrong body for burial after family members mistakenly made a positive identification.

The bizarre situation was discovered only after the remains were cremated and the man thought to have died turned up at a relative's house in May.

Disclosing the case June 12, the criminal affairs division of the Metropolitan Police Department explained that a man was hauled unconscious from the Edogawa river in the capital's Katsushika Ward in late June of last year. A hospital confirmed the man's death.


Police went through their files and found a set of fingerprints, which after an analysis, proved to have been taken from a different man in his 30s who lived in Tokyo.



 go throughに注目しました。〜を通り抜ける、苦しいことを経験するなどの意味がある句動詞ですが、この文脈ではもう一度洗い直すといった意味になるのではないかと思いました。『ライトハウス英和辞典』(第5版 研究社)で調べると「…を詳細に調べる、…をくまなく探す」という意味が見つかりました。例文には “The policeman went through the thief’s pockets.” で「警官はどろぼうのポケットを念入りに調べた。」と説明されています。

 LDOCEには “to search something in order to find something in particular” と定義されています。
