It's a ghost. Both have the same ID

Edit your question to say you created a ghost profile. Maybe add sysop tag.

Congratulations  Lance, you have created magic!  How did you do that? :-)

This seems to happen occasionally: two profiles are merged, but both still show up separately on a related profile.

The ghost may be exorcised by simply removing her (the Unknown one) as a child, from the profile of the father. I have performed the same type of exorcism several times, with good results, but will let somebody else have the pleasure this time.

Task completed.
Thanks Dorothy!

I was aiming to spread the knowledge about how easy it is to perform the exorcism (with a bit of concentration).

Now I'm thinking that perhaps something could be done to remove the bug that leaves those ghosts. Perhaps a "bug" tag to this question?
Added bug tag!
