5/8/17 Call Kurtis: Father’s Ashes Mishandled By The Post Office

CAMERON PARK (CBS13) – A Cameron Park woman says the post office lost her father’s ashes. Legally, that’s the only way you can ship them. But how they handled the remains was beyond belief for Candance Brooks.

After Brooks’ father, Jessie Cotton, passed away, no one could tell her what happened to the Korean War vet’s ashes.

“I just want my dad’s remains,” she said.

Cotton’s remains were shipped from a Florida funeral home to California through the United States Post Service Priority Mail, which is the only legal way to ship cremated remains.

  1. PME is the appropriate manner of shipping cremated remains. There should be a handling trail on the box. My condolences for thr family.
