The former operators of a respected Pasadena funeral home, who are on trial in a bizarre scandal that rocked their industry five years ago, are trying to shift the blame to their son. Attorney Edward A. Rucker, representing Laurieanne Sconce, has told jurors that mass cremations, commingling of ashes and dental gold extractions did take place at the family's businesses.
