The care and handling of a deceased loved one’s remains can be a sensitive topic for those who have lost a family member. Recently, the owners of a Texas funeral home were accused of abusing corpses and now face state crime charges. However, they refute those claims and instead say they have been embroiled in a dispute with their landlord.
The owners of the funeral home claim that they were temporarily locked out the month before the bodies were allegedly found. Although it is unclear how long the doors were locked, it was apparently due to back-rent being owed. The landlord claimed that the two fell behind on rent again, and the funeral home owners claim that he returned to the business a second time in order to lock the doors again.
