PA Woman Gets Dog Cremains Instead of Daughter’s from Funeral Home

PA resident Jennifer Dailey discovered that the cremated remains of her stillborn daughter were not, in fact, those of her daughter’s, but rather were those of a dog.  Two years ago, Daily’s daughter, Jerrica Sky, was a stillborn.  She arranged to have a funeral at Bauer Funeral Home located in Kittering.
After the service, Dailey took the remains home inside an urn supplied to her by the funeral home.  Inside the urn, Daily found a plaque that said “Butler Pet Cremation.”  The funeral home would later admit that the cremains of her daughter were mistakenly given to one family, presumably who thought they were receiving the cremains of their pet, while giving her the cremains of the dog.
Since then, Dailey has received what the funeral home now claims are her actual daughter’s cremains.  Dailey is considering suing the funeral home.  She also plans on getting a DNA test done to prove that the cremains are in fact those of her daughter’s.
