Man's Body Is Mistakenly Cremated Due to Name Mix-Up

CoronerA 26-year-old man was mistakenly creamted after a coroner technician confused his remains with another man that had the same name. The technician matched he name on the body but failed to check the coroner case number. Consequently, the accident caused the man’s family to file a claim against the coroner’s office, claiming they intended to donate his organs and make funeral arrangements.
