Funeral home put wrong body in casket, family says

FuneralAs a casket was being lowered into a grave, funeral home employees asked for it to be raised. The reason? The body inside the casket was the wrong body.

The woman in the casket shared a last name with Kyung Ja Kim, but was several years younger. Kim’s family is now suing the Blackley Funeral Home for $50 million.

“We trusted the funeral home, but they violated that trust that was promised to us,” Taichul Kim said.
