Niles mother still waiting for monument from Mcdermott Funeral Home

Posted: Updated:

NILES, Ohio - Niles police continue to field calls from people who are questioning the pre-need funeral contracts through McDermott's funeral home.

One victim tells 21 News she's angry and disappointed because she never received the monuments she paid for to remember her unborn twins.

"I never in my dreams thought somebody would do this to someone," she says.

Mother Jaime Daley says she was half-way through her pregnancy when she lost her twin boys to a rare disease last fall.

She says a memorial service was performed, but headstones never happened.

"All I wanted was for them to be at peace and what's owed to them and that's their headstone, for them to have their marker and for them to be acknowledged," says Daley.

McDermott is accused of bilking 50 clients out of pre-need funeral contracts totaling more than $150,000.

It's likely McDermott will face criminal charges. Niles police say he's not talking.

But on September 9, McDermott responded to a complaint Daley made to the Ohio Attorney General's Office.

He tells her, "I wish to explain and express the sincerity to honor all that was included in the $700 complete funeral for the infants."

Daley isn't sure he'll make good on the promise and is ready to move on.

"Just hope that everybody gets the closure that they need and the rest of the services provided to them that's owed to them," she says.

Daley believes her baby on the way is a blessing and prays others like her will find peace.
