Parents Discover What Funeral Home Really Did With Infant That Should Have Been Cremated

Everybody makes mistakes, but here’s one for the record books. A Florida family who lost an infant son shortly after birth allege a funeral home has given them the wrong ashes.

According to Tiesha Mack, the mother of Shaquille Burroughs Jr., who died after birth last summer, waited a solid month for the Taylor Smith and West Funeral Home in Belle Glade, Florida to give them her child's cremated ashes.

However, when the family eventually received the urn supposedly containing the infant’s ashes, the baby's grandmother said it was much too heavy for the tiny body that was cremated.

"I told (Mack) I really don't think that's the baby. That was my gut feeling," she noted in an interview with a local TV station.

The bereaved family decided to find out for sure, so they had the ashes in the urn tested at another crematorium, and it turned out the ashes actually belonged to an adult.

Mack claims she talked to first funeral home, and an employee admitted the baby's body was still at the facility stored in a freezer.

"No one should ever experience this. No one," a visibly upset Mack said on camera.

The funeral home would not comment for the record to the media.
