CHEHALIS, Wash. (AP) - The company that put the wrong body in the casket at a Washington state funeral says the mix-up happened when the two men were brought to the same funeral home around the same time.
Brown Mortuary Manager Daniel LaPlaunt told the Chronicle on Wednesday that the bodies were mislabeled in Kelso, Wash., before what was believed to be the body of a retired railroad conductor was picked up for transportation to Chehalis, Wash.
Family members were horrified Monday when they looked in the casket and saw the body of another man. They have hired a lawyer and asked the state Department of Licensing to investigate.
LaPlaunt says the company, which owns both funeral homes, has changed its policy and now will require family identification before any services to avoid a similar mistake in the future.
