Man Sues Funeral Home After Wife's Casket Surfaces During Flood

A Houston man is suing the cemetery where his wife was buried eight years ago after the woman's casket rose up out of the ground during recent floods that wreaked havoc in Texas.
High waters caused a coffin containing the remains of Carolyn Joyce Fobbs-Lee to rise to the surface last week at Riceville Cemetery in southwest Houston. The coffin traveled 150 feet and ended up on a concrete hiking trail along the bayou, KHOU reports.
Richard Lee, the deceased woman's husband, said the cemetery told him he'd have to pay a discounted burial fee before the casket could be placed back underground.
