Customers of Funeral Home Involved in Severed Corpse Gets Help from State
In June, a South Carolina judge ordered a funeral home to close, after a dead man?s legs were cut off, to force his body into a casket. Now the state is trying to help families who already have contracts with Cave Funeral Services in Allendale. The South Carolina funeral board revoked the license of Michael Cave, after he admitted that in 2004, a worker cut the legs off of James Hines? body, to put his 6?7?? frame in a smaller casket.
The South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs (SCDCA) wants to make consumers who signed pre-need funeral contracts with the organization scontact SCDCA immediately to have their contract transferred to the licensed provider of their choice.
While many consumers are already in the process of transferring their contracts to another licensed preneed contract provider, some consumers may not be aware that Cave Funeral Services, Inc. is no longer in operation.
?While it has been a few weeks since Cave Funeral Services closed their doors, we realize the word may not have reached everyone,? says SCDCA representative Alicia Clark. ?Furthermore, some consumers may have heard, but still don?t know what their responsibility is. A simple call to the Department is the best way a consumer can ensure that their contract is transferred to a licensed organization that can continue to provide them the services they deserve.?
