Huntsville funeral home faces embalming lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

A Huntsville funeral-home is under fire after a family sues them for failing to embalm their loved-one.  Nelms Memorial Funeral Home was supposed to handle embalming the body of Norman Holman, Jr. But they never did.  As a result, relatives arrived for the funeral to find his remains rotting in his casket. Some mourners say they had to leave the room because of the unbearable smell. Norman Holman died due to complications from a blood-clot.
