Black has seen the body – exhumed – and spotted “undesirable evidence”.

Says Mr Hines’s widow:

“According to the measurements on the casket, and the funeral director, we asked him, ‘Was this suitable for his length?’ and he said, ‘Yes that will be perfect.'”

What to do?

Hines told WJBF that her family has used Cave Funeral Services for a number of years, and she isn’t sure what the family will do in the future if the allegations are true.
