Lawsuit Filed Against Montgomery County Coroner’s Office on Behalf of Indiana Women Whose Husband was Cremated Following Misidentification, by Wright & Schulte LLC

Dayton, OH (PRWEB) April 25, 2013

Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced Ohio personal injury law firm, has filed a lawsuit against the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office, Board of Commissioners and a number of County officials, on behalf of an Indiana woman whose her husband’s body was cremated following the misidentification of his remains. The complaint (Case No. Case No. 2011 CV 07706) charges, among other things, that the Defendants’ reckless, malicious and negligent conduct interfered with the Plaintiff’s right to proper disposition of her husband’s remains. The lawsuit was originally filed in October 2011, and amended on March 19, 2013 to include additional Defendants. (Case No. Case No. 2011 CV 07706)

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff's husband was a passenger in a two-seater plane on March 5, 2010, when the plane crashed in Union County, resulting in the death of both her husband and the pilot. The injuries to the two men were so severe, a visual identification was impossible. Both bodies were subsequently taken to Montgomery County for autopsy, which provides autopsy services for Union County. At some point, the men’s wallets were mixed-up, resulting in the initial misidentification of their remains. While a forensic dentist did provide a correct identification, the initial mistake was never noticed or corrected.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff had a beautiful funeral for what she thought was her husband, interning his remains in a mausoleum in the couple’s hometown of New Castle, Pennsylvania. But in actuality, she had buried the pilot’s remains, while her husband remains were cremated by the pilot’s family. The Plaintiff did not learn of the mix-up until some months later, when the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office mailed her personal effects belonging to the pilot, and she began asking questions. She was formally informed that her husband’s remains had been misidentified via a telephone call she received on March 19, 2010, on what would have been the couple’s 33rd wedding anniversary. According to the Plaintiff, the debacle has been particularly upsetting to her husband’s family, traditional Catholics who do not believe in cremation.

The Plaintiff’s lawsuit charges the Defendants with, among other things, Interference with a Dead Body and Right of Sepulcher, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, and Gross Negligence and Recklessness. The complaint seeks damages on her behalf in excess of $25,000.
