I wish people wouldn't do this. David Estephan's hands are legally tied and cannot comply with Karen's requests, as hurtful as this is. To do so could get him sued, and he could his license to own & operate a funeral home.
I suggested to Karen days ago that she consult with an attorney to see if she had any legal standing to challenge prevailing codes, but I'm out of the loop and unaware whether she did so or not.
California Health and Safety Code, Section 7100, identifies who has the right to make decisions about disposition arrangements after an individual's death. Family Code Sections 297 and 297.5 were added January 1, 2005 to include registered domestic partners to the following list of individuals.
The responsibility for making decisions devolves in the following order: agent under a power of attorney for health care, spouse or registered domestic partner, adult children, parents, adult siblings and other competent adult kin.
NOTE: Exceptions may apply in certain situations. You may wish to consult with an attorney.
As hurtful and incredibly cruel this is to a grieving mother, Mr. Estephan is only following the law.
A friend that has used Cedar Hills Mortuary in the past, informed me that David Estephan comes from a well-respected Lebanese family, that has owned & operated funeral homes in Pasadena & Downey for decades.
..................Per the doctrine of Disconnection, Alexander was very carefully watched and manipulated by OSA for the last two years to stay away from his mother. And now, even after Alexander has passed, we can see that the Church of Scientology is still practicing Disconnection.
No Smurf NO. I am not asking to change disposition arrangements. I am asking for one last private last look and or/whether it's too late and the is already cremated.
And your "very respected Funeral Director" had some trouble in Sacramento, threatening someone with a weapon, not a firearm, although he was not convicted.
I have the dox.
I wish people wouldn't do this. David Estephan's hands are legally tied and cannot comply with Karen's requests, as hurtful as this is. …
His hands might well be legally tied, but what would a decent human being do in this situation?
A quiet phone call followed by opening up the funeral parlour out of hours to a grieving mother? Who could possibly fault someone for doing that?
The California Cemetery & Funeral Bureau could pull the man's license and deprive him of his livelihood? The cult could sue him for violating the wishes of the deceased's spouse?
You know as well as I do, the courts and the law don't always work in favor of the actual victims of injustices.
If I were in Mr. Estephan's shoes, I'd make a deal with Karen to allow her to see her son, on the condition that she not tell anyone. But, I'd be risking liability in doing so.
Anons are famous for saying "NYPA" but I think in this case it's very certain Karen and Alexander have their own private army - here and among all people who are disgusted with this outrage.
There will be justice for Alexander. Karen please stay strong and lean on the large community of people who love you and be vocal about any help you need to the thousands that support you.
Daily Mail On Line reports on Karen de la Carriere's tragic loss.
The Daily Mail Online is the most widely read media site on the Net. It has posted an article on the tragic death of Karen de la Carriere's son 27 year old Alexander Jentzsch. Her pain is compounded by the heartless and inhuman treatment she is now enduring at the hands of the Church.
This situation is so seriously wtf! And the fact that they were SEPARATED should damn well count for something also - loving wife my fat arse!
His mother is the only one that truly loved that boy. Even Heber chose the church. The only person who loved him kept from him at the loneliest of times. That is beyond sad.
