The images of those bodies discovered at a crematory in Georgia are causing concerns among some Missourians who have been calling state offices, looking for assurances that something similar could not happen here. Pat Handley, the Executive Director of the State Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors, says Missouri insists that inspections be conducted on a regular basis, with inspectors quickly reporting findings to the Board. Missouri has 35 crematories – all are licensed by the state. In Georgia, the state only licenses crematories that deal with the public. It does not license crematories dealing only with funeral homes.
