The Spartanburg County Coroner's Office says an investigation is under away after an unrecognizable human body was found at an Upstate funeral home.

The coroner said an investigation began after a complaint was filed by a former employee of the First Family Funeral Home on Chesnee Highway.

The deceased was identified as 63-year-old Mary Alice Pitts Moore who was supposed to be cremated in 2015.  The investigation is ongoing.

Spartanburg Coroner Rusty Clevenger said it took his office two weeks to make an ID because “conventional means were not possible.”

Clevenger said he met with Moore’s surviving family members Friday morning in Saluda, and said they are “upset at the revelation since her final disposition was to be cremated in 2015.”

He said SLED officials, as well as the State Attorney General, have been contacted about this case.

Clevenger said this is an open investigation and said no charges have been filed at this time.
