Watch Your Legs!

Posted: July 20, 2009 in Uncategorized

A judge has the ordered the closing of a South Carolina funeral home. The reason? They cut the legs off of a body so it would fit in the casket. The judge’s ruling upheld the state Funeral Board’s decision to revoke the license of Cave Funeral Home and its owner, Michael Cave.

James Hines was 6’7″. When he died, his wife picked out a standard size casket. Well, apparently you cannot fit a 6’7″ body in a standard size casket. So the funeral worker did what anybody missing part of their brain would do – he cut off part of the man’s legs.

Seriously, what the hell is wrong with people? If the man’s body didn’t fit in the casket then for christ’s sake the funeral home should have called his wife to apprise her of the situation. Then it would have been up to her to choose a bigger casket. To cut off part of a man’s legs is just plain pathetic! That’s called desecration of a corpse, which by the way in South Carolina is punishable by 1-10 years in prison. Thankfully this funeral home won’t be able to show the same disrespect to any more bodies.
