A family is suing a funeral home over a brain found in a bag of their loved one’s personal effects.

Albuquerque, N.M. (WiredPRNews.com) – A funeral home is being sued by a New Mexico family who found a brain in a bag of their loved one’s personal effects. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the family of a woman who died in a car accident discovered the finding after receiving the bag from the DeVargas Funeral Home and Crematory of the Espanola Valley.

Richard Valle, an attorney for the plaintiffs, is quoted by the AP as stating of the matter, “This is just a sad tragedy… This almost feels like something you’d read about in a Stephen King book.”

As noted in the report, an additional funeral home based in Utah, which transported the body, Serenicare Funeral Home in Draper, has also been named as a defendant in the case.
