Practically the entire village walked out to the graveyard to witness the burial.
Of course, most of these people were present the last time. Some were even graveside for the first attempt.
The exact reasons this man refused to remain buried were not understood. However, last rites were again offered.
The sextant brandished an axe and chopped off the hands of the corpse before the assembly.
A few cheered this mutilation.
The villagers were just pleased that the previous returns of this undead fool had occurred in the daylight.
A few suspected a nighttime incident may play out quite differently.
