No Dignity for the Dead
Here's a story that needs exposure and reaction: National Funeral Home in Falls Church, which acts as a regional clearinghouse that embalms and stores bodies for four other Washington area funeral homes, treated the dead with at best disregard.
A witness who worked there said as many as 200 corpses were left on makeshift gurneys in the garage, in hallways and in a back room, unrefrigerated and leaking fluids onto the floor. Some were stored on cardboard boxes or were balanced on biohazard containers. At least half a dozen veterans destined for the hallowed ground at Arlington National Cemetery were left in their coffins on a garage rack. It's an appalling expose by our colleague Josh White.
