Family files lawsuit after Wayne County man is cremated before given an autopsy
WAYNE COUNTY, Mich. – A Wayne County family watched their loved one die from lung disease. They hired an autopsy company for answers, but they said they never got any answers. The Brownstone family hired Shawn Parcells’ autopsy company to determine if Wahl had died of mesothelioma. The family paid the company $3,500 but Wahl was cremated and there were no records of an autopsy. A federal indictment out of Kansas alleges that Parcells’ business, National Autopsy Company, took payments from 375 clients -- worth $1.1 million.
