ABC13.com reports that Rose Molina made the shocking discovery last weekend during services for her 32-year-old cousin.
“That day was especially hard for us because Saturday was the one-year anniversary of the loss of my grandmother, and they were buried next to each other,” Molina told the station.
But after her cousin’s body was placed in a hearse, Molina claims funeral director David L. Jones took what appeared to be a selfie with her cousin’s casket in the hearse behind him.
“You could see that he had it kind of angled, you know,” she continued. “You have it positioned in a certain way to catch the background.”
Molina said she asked Jones if he had taken a selfie, but he insisted he was just fixing his tie.
Molina later went to Jones’ Facebook page and found several photographs of Jones with hearses and caskets behind him.
Molina said the incident “tainted” her cousin’s funeral.
“He disrespected this day in my family’s life,” she told ABC13.com, adding that she plans to file an official complaint with state officials.
