Lost body, wrong corpse at viewing leads to lawsuit

The family of Nivina Cargill are seeking $25,000 in damages from Smoot Funeral Services in Columbus, who they claim bungled Cargill’s viewing and obituary, causing them much distress.

A family is suing an Ohio funeral company after their deceased relative’s body was misplaced and the wrong corpse was displayed for a private viewing.

Seven family members of Nivina Cargill filed the lawsuit Monday against Smoot Funeral Services, which works out of Edwards Funeral Home.

The suit, filed in Franklin County Common Pleas Court, seeks more than $25,000 in both compensatory and punitive damages.
