Many of the Worlds Largest Funeral Corporations Scandals unreported by the press. Others are reported in the press and then forgotten. When Service Corporation Scandals make it into the National Press, the story get’s national attention. Often there is no follow up in the media. Bloggers follow up only upon occasion on NYSE(SCI) stories.
This time it is another case of corpse abuse.
Yet another Service Corporation International (SCI) scandal has been reported. Details are still sketchy.
While the pictures were allegedly taken several years before James Patton started working at Earthman Funeral Home, this latest incident of alleged corpse abuse may have happened as recently as September 2008. Today a spokesperson with Houston-based SCI, the company that owns Earthman, says when authorities first alerted them of the disturbing allegations, Patton was immediately removed from his position and the company.
