TPN‘s Trifling Person of the Week

undertakerharold_justice_watson_srHarold Watson Sr.

So after Edna Woods died in November 2007, her family wanted her cremated. But they didn’t sign the proper papers, and didn’t pay the funeral director, Harold. Yet instead of calling county officials to get Edna’s body–as the law dictates he was supposed to do in such situations–Harold…did nothing. Instead, he stored Edna’s body at his funeral home for more than a year and then transferred it to one of his hearses, which he left locked on one of his properties, when he could no longer stand the smell. Harold: I’m sure your mama taught your trifling butt to do better than that.
