LEWISTON, Maine (WMTW) - Three more lawsuits have been filed against a Lewiston funeral home accused of letting decompose.

The lawsuits claim that Affordable Cremation Solution owner Kenneth Kincer failed to properly store the remains of three people.

Relatives all claim that the bodies had decomposed so badly that their loved ones were unrecognizable.

In one instance, according to a lawsuit, Kincer told a relative that he did not have a body bag to transport her sister’s body, so he used her bedsheets and a blanket.

The relatives said in the lawsuits that they were shocked when they learned from the State Medical Examiner’s Office that their loved ones’ remains were among those found unrefrigerated at the funeral home.

The State Board of Funeral Services has revoked Kincer’s license for 10 years.
