Alpharetta woman’s family suing Macon funeral home, hospital

A Macon funeral home and hospital are being sued after the family of an Alpharetta woman said the woman was embalmed without their consent, according to The Macon Telegraph.

Following a 2015 deadly crash, Natroya Hulbert’s body was supposed to be at Navicent Health, formerly The Medical Center of Central Georgia, until her family made funeral arrangements.

Instead, Hulbert was moved to Bentley & Sons Funeral Home and embalmed without mother Natasha Blakemore’s permission, the newspaper reported.

According to The Telegraph, if someone dies at the hospital, their body stays there until the family chooses a funeral home. If there is no space, the body is stored at a funeral home with a morgue for $100 a day to be paid by the county.

Hulbert died at the hospital, according to a previous story from The Telegraph.
