A former funeral home owner has been arrested after a corpse lay in a hearse for 2 years

Associated Press/Report for America

DENVER (AP) — Police in Colorado have arrested a former funeral home owner accused of hiding a woman’s corpse in a hearse for two years and hoarding the cremated remains of at least 30 people. The arrest of 33-year-old Miles Harford is the latest allegation of misconduct by Colorado funeral home owners. The finds have underscored the laxness of state funeral home regulations and pressed lawmakers to try to strengthen laws. A grisly scene of urns stashed in a crawl space and the hearse where the woman’s body lay under blankets was discovered in early February during an eviction. Available court documents did not yet list a defense attorney to comment on Harford’s behalf.
