Garofalo and Lin have given a counterexample for which unique continuation fails for the Schrödinger equation Δu+c|x|2+ϵu=0, ϵ>0.

Their counterexample consists of a Bessel function of the third kind Kv(|x|) with the restriction that v cannot be an integer. In this note we have removed the restriction.
