Wrong woman in casket at viewing

INGLEWOOD, Calif. – A mortuary in Inglewood has acknowledged it made a mistake by putting a woman in the wrong casket and burying her.

KNBC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/YX5ABZ) that 73-year-old Evans Davidson had complained that the woman in the casket at her viewing wasn’t his wife. But morticians at Simpson’s Mortuary believed it was Davidson’s wife of 51 years, Darlene.

Davidson said a few days after the funeral he was told by a mortuary employee that another family was claiming a body switch and his wife’s body was still at the mortuary.

A spokesman for Simpson’s Mortuary says they buried the wrong woman in Darlene Davidson’s grave.

The mortuary has offered to exhume the body and pay all expenses for both families to have proper funeral services.
