HOUSTON -

A family is demanding answers about how someone else's body ended up in their loved one's casket.

Jerry Moon died in Washington state earlier this month. When his family opened his casket at the funeral home, they found another man dressed in Moon's clothing.

Moon's body had been cremated.

The manager for Brown Mortuary said the two bodies were mislabeled and switched.

The mortuary is part of Houston-based company, Service Corporation International.

The company owns 30 funeral homes in Houston and 1,800 across the country.

A spokesperson for Service Corporation International says they are cooperating with the investigation.
