The Arizona Republic reports on problems with the funeral industry in Phoenix including wrongful cremation, the suicide of a mortuary worker, the theft of gold teeth and sexual abuses. The Arizona Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers investigates less than 1 percent of complaints each year -- and board members also admit that there are probably "three or four times" as many who do not complain. In other states funeral boards have been disbanded because they were hiding more than they were investigating.
