my neighbors dad was found dead in his home yesterday AM. his sister go's there to check on dad and finds him laying in the bathroom on the floor. she calls 911 and the fire depart and police arrive . the cops say it looks like he died natural .and around midnight the night before. they tell them that they need to call a someone to pick him up (funeral home ) and there is nothing they can do . they leave him laying right there on the floor. now let me back up a little bit. my neighbor (bill) is a hour away and the cops stay with his sister the whole hour till he arrives. so my neighbor has to find a funeral home he has no idea who to call .the cops say there a good one down the street. we'll he starts making some calls most homes won't make house calls to pick up the dead.
but i always thought when you died at home and it was not a hospice death. the medical examiner had to pick up a body .or at min. come to the house .also the body was still sent to a hospital morgue.
my neighbor had to personally pick up his dad and place him in is bed .the cops left like i said your on your own. this was till he found a funeral home will to accept his fathers body.
