No, it's not a subplot from Six Feet Under.
Missouri's attorney general is trying to shut down a funeral home, claiming the mortuary stored some bodies without refrigeration or embalming for more than 10 months.
A recent state investigation found Warren Funeral Chapel also reused soiled caskets and kept a dirty embalming room, according to Courthouse News Service.
On July 11, inspectors smelled a strong odor and followed it until they found an unembalmed, unrefrigerated body of someone who died in September 2007. It was in an advanced stage of decay and was being stored in the electrical room, investigators said.
"There are very serious concerns for human health and safety about how this establishment has handled human remains," Attorney General Jay Nixon said in a statement.
