Mo. funeral home faces financial trouble
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A central Missouri funeral home accused of mishandling bodies has a recent history of financial trouble that includes an attempt to declare bankruptcy.
Court records show that the Warren Funeral Home filed for federal bankruptcy protection in 2006 before the case was voluntarily dismissed one year later.
The business also defaulted on several debts in recent years.
Warren funeral homes in Fulton and Columbia remain closed after the Missouri attorney general's office says it found a decaying woman's body that had been stored in an electrical room at the Columbia funeral home for 10 months without being embalmed or refrigerated.
Inspectors also found a garbage bag filled with organs in the funeral home's basement.
