It’s been three months since Jefferson’s star Sherman Hemsley passed away at his east El Paso home but, his body still is yet to be buried.
According to KTSM reports:
Sherman Hemsley died on July 24 from lung cancer, but the late television star has still not been buried due to a legal battle over his estate and his final resting place.
Hemsley’s body remains at a morgue while his family and the executer fight over his burial. Hemsley’s will states that Flora Enchinton Bernal is the executer. His family is challenging bernal and the will.
On Tuesday, both sides met in downtown El Paso to give testimony before the judge makes his decision.
The deposition at the offices of Associated Court Reporters lasted four hours.
Bernal has said Hemsley wanted to be buried in El Paso, his home for the past two decades.
Hemsley’s family, his alleged brother and nephew believe he should be buried near his family in Pennsylvania. Family members have said they think the will is suspicious because it was made just a month before Hemsley died.
We talked to Bernal as she walked out of the office on Tuesday. She said this has been a tough process and it’s now in God’s hands.
So devastating this man worked his all life to finally pass away and still can’t rest. We hope his family gets it together soon so he came be property put to rest.
