A Las Vegas funeral home “accidentally” cremated the remains of a woman meant to be prepared for a funeral and burial, her family alleged in a lawsuit filed this week. The family of Loren Chavez, 41, is suing Davis Funeral Home and Memorial Park and its associated companies for negligence, according to the lawsuit filed in Nevada’s 8th Judicial District Court in Clark County on Monday. On Oct. 4, 2022, Chavez’s parents dropped off clothing for the funeral, which was scheduled for Oct. 7, the lawsuit said. At first, the funeral home told Chavez’s parents they could not find Chavez in their system, then said it had found her remains, according to the family’s lawyer, Christian Morris. A few hours after leaving the funeral home, Chavez’s parents were called back.
