Wed., 7:34am: State agencies investigating Trumbull funeral homes

WARREN — The Ohio Attorney General’s office and the Ohio Department of Insurance are investigating the Robert McDermott Funeral Home in Niles and the McClurkin Funeral Home in Girard, both accused of misdirecting hundreds of thousands of dollars in preneed money that was supposed to be placed in trusts.

Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office also put a tax lien on McDermott.

The Ohio Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers closed both funeral homes.
