They're going to feel pretty foolish if it turns out she murdered him.

It's a violation of the state's health and safety code to bury a human body anywhere other than an approved and recognized cemetery

Here in PA the back yard is fine and dandy.

About the only rule in PA governing a corpse is that if you prop them up in the living room for more than a day, they have to be on dry ice.

It is legal in California unless a City Ordinance prohibits it.  Actually that is true for most states, in Georgia no vault is required if the body is not embalmed a simple pine ox or canvas bag is all that is necessary.   Oh they do make you give the location of the burial so 40 years down the line when some construction crew digs up Grandpa the police don't freak out.

FTA : "She was out there almost every day painting and fixing up that house all by herself," Wilson said. "She's a really strong lady."

Strong enough to KILL a man?

FTA: Phyllis Jerscheid, owner of Jerschied's Men's Apparel in Victorville, said she would donate a suit to the Winns so he could be buried.

I feel bad for whoever has to dress that body. The guy's been dead a few weeks plus I don't think they'll have an open casket so a suit seems a little unnecessary

Wife is 59.

From the headline I was expecting some 85 year-old woman who had to drag him behind her on her Scooter Bug.

I always tell my better half that if I go first, to just put me in a heavy duty plastic bag and out for the Monday morning trash pickup. Cynical? Why yes it is.

She says that's not funny. I used to tell her I wanted my head frozen, until until that story about the guys playing frozen head soccer.

Why do people never think of cremation? It cost about $150-$250 and you can either keep the ashes on a shelf or dump them wherever you wish.

So people can bury a dead pet dog or cat in the backyard, but not a human.
Obviously if one type of corpse is a health concern, the other would be too.
Sounds like this is a case of making sure somebody gets paid.

I'm the biggest Libertarian ever, but I would gladly approve tax dollars for such a public cremation service.

Outside of government spending, weddings and funerals are the two biggest wastes of money.

Dog food doesn't have the same carcinogen level that many people foods have.  They are more environmentally safe than human bodies who have ingested shiat for calories their entire lives.

Earth to earth, dust to dust and all that.

The problem is folks burying animals that were put to sleep- the chemicals leach out and enter the water table.

the fundrazr goal is $3000 ? Why the fark should a dead person cost 3 grand ? 1 or 2 hundred bucks  should cover the transport of the body and the fuel to burn it as well as a vase to keep the ashes if you are into such a weird farking thing as storing dead people left overs  Burial is farking archaic and non sustainable as global population approaches 10 billion.

"She's a really nice lady," said Colin Wilson who lives behind the Winns. "She would always wave to me every morning."

I had my mother cremated without prior embalming. It was a hell of a lot more than that.

The urns can be a bit expensive.  You can improvise

If you go through a funeral home they charge extra, you need to go straight through a crematorium. The plain old burn em and put the ashes in a cardboard box runs about what I said around here but I'm sure that can vary by location. If you plan on spreading the ashes then no urn is needed, otherwise buy one online because they rake you over the coals on them too.

We have plans here, my husband and I, to make the walled raised area under our front deck a vault.
I do love one or two things about living in Pennsyltucky.

It would have cost over $7000 to bury my father. Cremation worked out to around $800. Why do we still bury people?

Take it from one who had to do this in the past year. Cremation is about a grand. My wife wanted the cheapest thing and that was it in Denver. I have the same provision. The "Urn" was $70 and likened to a Chinese takeout large package. Funeral expenses are outrageous, but for $1200 I harkened to her wishes.
Me? Put me on and ice floe and let the polar bears eat me. But that is about 4,000 miles away.
Drats!
