Some Ohio Families Refuse to Claim Bodies http://www.comcast.net/news/index.jsp?cat=GENERAL&fn=/2006/06/12/411329.html&cvqh=itn_bodies In some of these situations, we do find family members that readily acknowledge that they're capable of providing financial assistance, but want nothing to do with them. That seems to be a fairly common situation." In one instance, a woman contacted the Ohio Funeral Directors Association, which handles indigent cases, to pay for the funeral of her dying mother-in-law, said Trey Wackerly, a Canton funeral director and member of the organization. At first the woman claimed she couldn't afford it, but when Wackerly pressed her, she acknowledged that there was insurance money, but that her family didn't like the mother-in-law and hoped to use the cash to remodel their kitchen. "I couldn't believe it," Wackerly said.
