Dead man billed for removing body after car crash

A Northern Michigan family is outraged after their deceased family member received a bill for his own body removal.

The Mackinaw City Fire Department sent 64-year-old Carl Norman Little a bill for $500 after the car crash that killed him.

"I'm dumb-founded, frankly, with the whole thing," said Little's stepdaughter Rebecca Beck. "They billed my dad knowing that he was dead, because they removed his corpse and they sent it to him. And frankly, I just couldn't believe it."

Little was headed south on I-75 last month when he lost control of his car south of Mackinaw City. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to the Village of Mackinaw City's website, the village manager sent a letter to the family and is making sure this does not happen again. The manager said the bill should have been sent to Little's insurance company.
