Outrage: Facebook photo of Veteran's body displayed without coffin

Friends and family of George Taylor were shocked by what they saw boy of the 71 year old vet laid out on a gurney with an American flag draped over him at his funeral. The reason his body wasn't placed inside a coffin was due to an apparent issue about payment.

His son James Taylor said the issue was over a $9,000 payment that was due to come from his father's life insurance. The image was posted on Facebook by Ella Moss.

"This is how his friends an (sic) family had to see him," Moss wrote in the post with the photo. "I am in total disbelief."

A representative from Heritage Funeral Home has said that the business has received threats since the photo was posted.
