Talk about collateral. According to a Flint, Mich., undertaker, the family of one James McDill hasn't paid a $3,605.59 bill at the House of Spencer Mortuary for three years. Which is too bad because, throughout that duration, the late Mr. McDill has been lying, dead and embalmed, inside the mortuary. The family wants McDill interred. But mortuary owner J. Merrill Spencer vows, "I'm prepared to keep him forever if need be." The state morticians association says that, while legal, this situation is "unusual."
