CHICAGO (CBS) — The case of a misidentified man that caused the wrong family to make life-and-death decisions about his care has been solved. Officials have determined it was Elisha Brittman who was admitted to Mercy Hospital in April.

The family that made a decision to take Brittman off a ventilator later learned their relative, Alfonso Bennett, was actually alive.

Brittman has a long criminal record, but the circumstances surrounding his death remain unknown. Police have launched a death investigation and want to learn why he was found under a car, naked and with no identification, on the morning of April 29 on the 4700 block of South Wabash.

Still, there are also unanswered questions about what led the wrong family to Brittman’s hospital bed.

CBS 2’s Suzanne LeMignot first reported on the mix-up last week.

On May 13, Rosie Brooks got a phone call from an employee from Mercy Hospital, who said her brother was in intensive care.

Brooks rushed to Mercy with her sister Brenda Bennett-Johnson.

“They had him on the ventilator, and they had a tube in his mouth,” Brooks said.

They both looked at the man in the hospital bed, who had been brought in as John Doe, and said the couldn’t identify the man.

“They kept saying, CPD identified this person as our brother,” Bennett-Johnson said.

Brooks said hospital staff said the man had been badly beaten, especially in the face.

Alfonso Bennett has a background and is rarely in touch with his four sisters. Bennett-Johnson said a nurse told her police identified him through mug shots

Investigators crack cold case murder of South Dakota woman

Investigators crack cold case murder of South Dakota woman RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — The murder of a pharmacist who was raped and strangled in her home in a South Dakota city more than half a century ago has been solved with the use of DNA technology and genealogy databases, police said. Investigators believe Eugene Carroll Field killed 60-year-old Gwen Miller in 1968 when he was a 25-year-old living in Rapid City, Detective Wayne Keefe said at a news conference Monday. He said there was enough evidence to charge Field with first-degree murder, but that he died in 2009. It is "a little surreal" to finally identify the killer after 51 years and up to 5,000 hours of work, Keefe said. The motive remains unknown.

They purchased a casket and a suit and made funeral arrangements.

Around the same time, they received a phone call from one of their other sisters.

“She called my sister Yolanda to say, ‘It’s a miracle! It’s a miracle!'” said Brooks.

“‘Brenda! Brenda! It’s Alfonso! It’s Alfonso! I said, ‘You’re kidding!’ I could have almost had a heart attack,” Bennett-Johnson said.

Alfonso Bennett was alive and well and had just walked through her front door.

Sources told CBS 2 that police only take fingerprints when a person commits a crime or is taken to the morgue, which ultimately happened in this case but not before Bennett’s family had to go through this very unusual situation.
