The family of the deceased plans to file a complaint against the Texas funeral home.


HOUSTON (KTRK/CNN) – A funeral home is apologizing after a funeral director was caught taking selfies with a casket.

On Saturday, Rose Molina’s family laid her cousin to rest. On that day of mourning, she couldn’t believe what she saw.

She said David Jones, the funeral director, took what appeared to be a selfie with her cousin’s casket behind him.

Soon after, she said she went to his Facebook page and found numerous photos of Jones with caskets and hearses.

She approached Jones to ask him about the suspected selfie of her cousin’s casket right after she says she saw him take the photo. She said he told her he was just checking his tie.

“It’s very insensitive,” Molina said. “It’s a lack of respect for that time. We trusted him to respect this day in our family’s life.”
