CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — 6 Investigates will examine the struggles a local woman endured to recover the body of her dead husband.

Gloria Garcia and her husband, Jose, were married more than 40 years.

But when he died in mid-December, Gloria went online to find a cremation service.

She signed a contract and paid a company called Legacy Funeral Services to do the cremation.

Gloria thought she was working with a local company - but turns out - Legacy is based in Florida.

That's when her personal nightmare started.

We’ll provide an in-depth look at Gloria's month-long fight for her husband's remains - and the traumatic toll it took on this recent widow.

Her story will be heard tonight on KRIS 6 News at 6 p.m.
