DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — A Dothan mother is filing a lawsuit against a Dothan funeral home after, she said, her deceased daughter was horribly mistreated.

“I have to exhume my baby,” Bonnie Curry said. “I got (to) dig my baby back up when you’re supposed to be at rest. She had a hard life. She was raped at three.”

Curry told WDHN after her daughter died, she contacted Scott’s Chapel Hill Mortuary because she was impressed with their work.

It wasn’t until her daughter’s funeral that she discovered her daughter’s body was being treated with no respect.

According to Curry, the funeral home misprinted her daughter’s obituary, canceled her daughter’s wake, and then forced her casket into a burial vault that it would not fit in.

“They dropped her on the church (floor) and they dragged her body so hard there are gauge marks on my mom’s church stairs,” Curry said.

Now, Curry is fighting for her daughter’s justice.

“I will get justice for her because my heartbroken,” Curry said.
