Funeral Home Put Wrong Body in Casket for Visitation
As the Chapman family gathered to mourn the loss of their matriarch, Doris, they noticed something was off about her. The clothes were correct, but it wasn't Doris.
They spoke with funeral home employees, who replied "This type of thing happens. That is your grandmother, the body does change."
Doris's niece Valencia, said “We thought that the funeral home knew best. They were telling us that she was not ready, ‘She won't look like this when we're done.'"
The family gave up their case, until the next morning when they arrived for the funeral, and Doris was in the casket in her own clothes. One employee admitted that a mistake was made.
The family reached out to a local station about the incident, and told them they are planning to sue the funeral home.
