PROSPECT, Conn. (AP) -- A grieving family learned their
95-year-old great-grandmother had been cremated when they found a
stranger's body in her casket, and a Connecticut funeral home is
being investigated in the incident.
Relatives of Aurelie Tuccillo noticed the wrong body when they
arrived at the Buckmiller Brothers Funeral Home in Prospect for
calling hours Tuesday night.
Police said Wednesday that state and local officers found
Tuccillo had "inadvertently been cremated."
Funeral home owner Wayne P. Buckmiller calls the mix-up "a most
unfortunate incident."
He says the home is working with the family to resolve the
situation.
Tuccillo's family did not immediately return a call for comment.
The state Department of Public Health is also investigating the
incident.
