TN Government: Funeral home embalmed bodies in break room, reused caskets
Newsroom managers actually spotted this story on another station and then passed it on to me. Getting story ideas from the competition or a newspaper is common. This one involved a Memphis funeral home owner accused by a state board of embalming bodies in a break room, among other things. I called the owner while on the way to the funeral home to get video. I didn't think he'd be willing to talk on camera. But he did. He even showed us around the funeral home.
