One of the worst cases of abuse of corpse I have ever heard of. This is why I always say, do your research before choosing funeral/cremation provider. Many use third parties, as those calling themselves "cremation societies." Research!

Again, I cannot stress the importance of research! Watch out for those using 3rd party contractors, or those calling themselves "Cremation Societies." You would be appalled if you saw how they handled your loved ones.

I just want to know how the families didn't miss the bodies. I am assuming all these bodies were to be cremated? I lost a baby when I was 15 years old and I had her cremated. When we picked up the ashes, they gave them to me in a sandwich bag with a twist on top of it AND the bag had a hole in it. I wish I hadn't been a minor because they would have been sued.

Be aware of cremation providers, especially those calling themselves "societies." They utilize third-party companies, so you really never know what is happening with your loved one.
