Re: A bad case of mistaken identity
From the article I read (not exactly the same as linked above), the initial misidentification was from the two girls' friends at the scene. Because they were so similar-looking and the injuries were severe -- and they were heading to work at a banquet, so they were probably dressed identically -- that was plausible. After that, because the one girl was in a coma with facial injuries, and the parents of the girl that supposedly died didn't go through with the identification, it was not caught. If Whitney had died instead of coming out of her coma, it may never have been discovered. Thank goodness it was, but I can't imagine how Laura's parents must feel.
