    This clunky database can help you vet Colorado funeral homes while the state barely regulates them

    By Scott Franz at KUNC (Via AP Storyshare) Dozens of Colorado residents file complaints against funeral homes and crematories each year. Several funeral homes are then investigated and disciplined over those complaints. But unless they’re reported on by media outlets, many of the stories of alleged misconduct live in relative obscurity deep inside a clunky government database.
