 “I’m just still in shock that something like this could happen and they haven’t owned up to it. It wasn’t our father, so at that point, you’re in shock like – that’s not our father. You keep telling them it’s not our father and they’re not listening.” Spenser said.

According to Spenser, his family decided to sue the morgue, Moon Funeral Home after their earlier pleas fell on deaf ears.

Their lawsuit is coming 6 months after the burial.
