Man accused of conducting unlicensed funeral service, authorities say - Chicago TribuneFriday, January 06, 2017
Chicago area, authorities said.
Adam Casey, 27, was charged this week with forgery and funeral directing without a license in one of those cases, officials said.
Cook County Judge Darron Bowden set bail Thursday at $10,000 for Casey.
According to the website for Casey's services, he lists funerals performed since 2015, many of which are in the south suburbs and on the South Side of Chicago.
Casey is not licensed to perform embalming or funeral services in Illinois, Cook County prosecutors said. He does hold an apprentice's license in Texas, but that is not transferable to Illinois, they said.
Prosecutors said Casey allegedly used the name and license number of a licensed funeral director to fill out a death certificate in Markham for a woman who died on July 9.
"There are (other funeral services) that he is suspected to have performed, and those are being investigated," said Sophia Ansari, of the Cook County sheriff's office.
The family of the woman who died July 9 and the person whose license number Casey allegedly used contacted Cook County sheriff's police, who arrested Casey during a funeral at the Mt. Glenwood Cemetery in Glenwood, prosecutors said.
On July 9, Casey allegedly offered his services to the family of the deceased, recovered t...

Convoy evokes Canadian pride in North Bay - Vermilion StandardWednesday, March 27, 2019
Monday afternoon.Caron, of North Bay, was waiting in the parking lot at Motion Canada on Gormanville Road for almost 100 vehicles, from small cars to big rigs, to pull in on their journey from Alberta to Parliament Hill with a message for federal politicians.

It's about getting back the political process."The United We Roll Convoy for Canada, a caravan of transports, work vehicles and personal automobiles, left Red Deer, Alta., last Thursday bound for Ottawa and a protest on Parliament Hill Tuesday."The media and the government have divided the provinces," Caron says. "We want to fight for our freedoms and our rights. We want fair government.""We are watching Justin Trudeau slowly strip away every right we had," Sarah Zaldinger, of Timmins, said as about two dozen supporters waited for the convoy to arrive, sharing updates on when the parade would roll into town."He is stripping the future of my children and their children and their children," Zaldinger said. "They are being set up for failure. Their rights, their future, will all be destroyed if we don't stand up now."Although she was not part of the convoy to North Bay, Zaldinger was going to join it Tuesday morning for the rally in Ottawa as part of her own objective of "direct democracy."And direct democracy is possible, she said.Zaldinger pointed to a recent Amber Alert sent to cellphone users across the province ...
