The folks at Pipkin Mortuary have a lot of 'splainin' to do -- but no amount of apologetic words is likely to salve the wounds of the various families involved in an unbelievable body mix-up -- or another family whose son's remains had to be exhumed following another botch.

And once that story broke, another family came forward to say Pipkin initially buried their dead son in a pink casket. The boy's body had to be exhumed and reburied in a coffin with a color scheme they found more appropriate.
