MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The daughters of an Alabama woman who died are suing a funeral home, saying it lost their mother’s body after her graveside service.
The three daughters of Jimmie Lee Scott are suing Ross-Clayton Funeral Home in Montgomery County Circuit Court.
The Montgomery Advertiser reports the lawsuit says Scott died April 5, 2010, and was buried in Oakwood Cemetery Annex on April 10 in a service conducted by the funeral home. The plaintiffs say they left after a graveside service.
Attorney Chip Nix says one daughter, Dakota Scott, later had trouble finding the grave but finally located the tombstone. He says the area was dug up, but there was no casket, and the body has not been found.
A funeral home employee says no one there could comment.
