Midstate funeral director suspended after decomposing bodies found

  • The Associated Press

(Harrisburg) — A midstate funeral director has been suspended indefinitely after four decomposing bodies were found at his funeral home.

Andrew Scheid agreed to the indefinite license suspension before a scheduled appearance Friday before the State Board of Funeral Directors.

The Lancaster County coroner’s office went to Scheid’s Manor Township location last month and found the decomposing remains in a preparation area.

None of the bodies had been refrigerated or embalmed.

No criminal charges have been filed.
