Three days later the family was informed that she would be buried in a closed coffin. Later it turned out that the refrigerators for storing corpses were broken, the body lay some days wrapped in a package and managed to turn black.
“They brought her down there [to the morgue] in the package and never opened it. In addition, they said the refrigeration equipment broke down, however, why this is not reported is unclear.
