Why Morgue Employees Won’t Get Cremated By Mistake

Satire websites keep creating stories about tired morgue employees getting cremated by mistake.

Find out why that’s just not possible, and is merely a way to trick you into sharing their fake stories!


Morgue Employees Keep Getting Cremated By Mistake

Being a morgue employee sure is a dangerous job – they keep getting cremated by mistake. Here’s another one :

An employee of a Roseville, Michigan Funeral Home & Cremation Service died this morning, after being accidentally cremated by one of his coworkers.

According to the Police, 48-year old Paul Houston decided to take a nap one a stretcher after working for sixteen hours straight.

While he was sleeping, another employee mistook him for the corpse of a 52-year old car accident victim and carried him to the crematory.

Before anyone could notice the mistake, he had already been exposed to temperatures ranging between 1400 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit and reduced to ashes.

Jenna Anderson, one of Mr Houston’s coworkers, says she heard him scream for about 15 seconds after the crematory was activated.

“At first, we didn’t understand where the sound was coming from. When we realized what was happening, it was too late. We shut down the heating system, but he was already dead.”

Ms. Anderson claims that the young coworker who caused the accident was a new employee, and had forgotten to check for the toe tag to make sure he had the right body.

Jenna Anderson says she heard the victim scream in agony as the crematory was reducing him to ashes.
The police has opened an investigation to determine the exact circumstances surrounding Mr Houston’s death.

Investigators have not ruled out the possibility of filing criminal charges against the employee who caused his death.

The young man could possibly be accused of criminal negligence causing death.

A similar version, which was apparently posted by ABC News, seems to validate the other stories about the unfortunate morgue employee who got cremated by mistake…


Why Morgue Employees Won’t Get Cremated By Mistake

Morgue employees really don’t get cremated by mistake. It has never happened, ever. These are just FAKE STORIES by satire (fake story) websites.

Help stop the creation of such fake stories by BOYCOTTING fake story websites like Weekly Inquirer, news24, The Daily Star, Trendolizer, etc. DO NOT SHARE THEIR STORIES!

Fact #1 : They Are Fake Stories By Satire Websites

Websites like Weekly Inquirer, Trendolizer and news24 (The Daily Star) call themselves satire websites, but they are really nothing more than websites that copy and paste FAKE STORIES for the clicks.

They try their best to post shocking stories as if they are true, doing their very best to conceal that the stories are not true.

Most of them have only a tiny disclaimer at the bottom of every page, which we have to blow up to show you :

They also bury the true nature of their websites in their privacy policy, hiding in the mess of disclaimers that :

Information contained in this website is for information and entertainment purposes only.

Fact #2 : That’s NOT The Real ABC Website

The worst kind of “satire” websites are those who try to pass themselves off as real website. Like, which tries to mimic real ABC News website –

The only reason they do this? To trick you into sharing their fake news, so that they get more page views.

Fact #3 : That’s The Hickory Hill Funeral Home

The picture they used is of the Hickory Hill Funeral Home in Fox Meadows, Tennessee.

That morgue gained notoriety in May 2016 after WREG exposed how the owner did not have an embalmer’s licence and abandoned two bodies inside after he closed down the business.

Fact #4 : The Story Is Not Even Logical

The story has bad grammar and bad spelling all over the place, but what’s worse – it is not even logical.

  1. Even an extremely tired person will wake up if someone wheels the stretcher.
  2. Even an extremely tired person will DEFINITELY wake up when he’s being lifted and placed into the combustion chamber.
  3. Isn’t it obvious to everyone that the sleeping employee is dressed differently, even in a uniform?
  4. No one gets cremated on a slab. The dead body is first placed in a casket before being cremated.
  5. The cremation process takes a long time – about 1-2 hours – to reduce a body into ashes. Yet the story claimed that he was reduced to ashes even though they turned it off, after hearing him scream?

The story has more holes than Swiss cheese…

Fact #5 : This Is Just The Michigan Version

This story is nothing more than the Michigan version of the New York cremation hoax, which was posted to coincide with the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York City.

That fake story naturally went viral, and probably made satire websites a lot of money… which is why they keep coming up with these fake stories.

So please STOP sharing their fake stories!
