Funeral director Gregory Dunphy, 64, and Felicia Boesch, 39, the daughter of the funeral home’s owner, were arrested and charged with a combined 16 misdemeanor counts of unlawful storage of human remains.
The News-Herald reported that Bay Country Sheriff’s deputies responded to a tip about bodies being improperly stored at Brock’s Home Town Funeral Home near Panama City.
According to WJHG-TV, deputies found flies throughout the building and found at least six bodies being stored without any refrigeration. An additional 10 bodies were being stored in an area called the cooler which is supposed to be kept at no more than 40 degrees; the cooler was 62 degrees.
None of the bodies had been embalmed and cremations had not been done according to some family members’ wishes, the station reported.
Callaway funeral home not storing bodies properly, two charged
A sign on the front door of Brock Hometown Funeral Homesays it's permanently closed. The move comes after the Bay County Sheriff's Office made a disturbing discovery Sunday.
"I'm not aware of us having a situation like this before," said Sheriff Tommy Ford. "The funeral home industry in Bay County is very professional and it appears that this particular funeral home was having some business and financial issues."
Deputies found flies throughout the building and found six bodies being stored with no refrigeration. Ten bodies were stored in an area called the cooler which is required to be kept at no more than 40 degrees.
According to reports the temperature in the cooler was 62 degrees.
