Lawsuit: County officials wouldn't release daughter's body


December 2, 2019

BOISE, Idaho - Two parents who are members of a Northern Idaho tribe have filed a lawsuit contending Kootenai County officials refused to return their daughter's body after she died in a car crash and planned an autopsy despite the family's objections because of religious beliefs.

Nichole and Hemene James of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court last week seeking unspecified damages.
