Following an individual’s death, family members and friends are faced with a multitude of issues relating to handling of the remains. For some, the challenges in dealing with these responsibilities are overburdensome and the least of their concerns. For others, it is a welcome distraction. This presentation provides an overview of the following topics and more: who has control of a decedent’s remains, what governs the control of remains, anatomical gifts, coroner’s inquests, autopsies and other procedures, deaths while abroad, death certificates, transportation and shipment of remains, interment and funeral arrangements, disposition of cremains, water cremation, criminal consequences for unlawful disposition of remains, and disinterment and removal.
Presented by Daniel Kim.
