BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Staff at a local funeral home tell 23ABC that their facilities are randomly inspected on a yearly basis.
“We’re not all bad just because one funeral director is not complying with the rules,” said Ray Mish, owner of Mission Family Mortuary.
James Gamble, owner of Beloved Care Funeral Home, was arrested earlier this week on suspicion of improperly storing human bodies. He’s currently out on bond.
“If a funeral home gets in this kind of trouble, it puts a sense of doubt in the community,” Kenny Mount Jr., Part Owner and Funeral Consultant at Mission Family, told 23ABC.
The California Cemetery and Funeral Bureau has created a website that allows anyone to check the last time a funeral home was inspected and any major violations that were found.
“They know what they’re looking for and they don’t miss anything,” Mish said.
