According to WCVB – Channel 5, Casper Funeral Home – a South Boston family run business providing funeral services for the past 85 years – has been storing bodies in an unlicensed facility. Channel 5 investigates discovered a garage where bodies were stored in refrigerators on Tudor Street.
According to Casper’s website it claims it’s one of the most trusted funeral and cremation service providers in the state and describes the garage as a “state-of-the-art” secure funeral refrigeration facility. The website also advertises the bargain price of $1395 for a cremation.
The investigation also goes on to report that during a recent recent surprise state inspection an investigator found “two bodies being processed in the unlicensed space. Twelve others were stashed in a refrigerator and there are no sprinklers or drains. The garage, which sits around the corner from the funeral home, was hot and cluttered.” Good grief!
