Body Of Delaware Courthouse Shooter Cremated

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, DE. (AP) - A funeral home official says the body of a Texas man who killed his former daughter-in-law and another woman at a Delaware courthouse has been cremated.
Chick Mealey of the Mealey Funeral Home says the body of 68-year-old Thomas Matusiewicz was cremated Thursday, shortly after it was released by the state. Authorities say Matusiewicz killed himself following the courthouse shooting.
Lenore Matusiewicz, the gunman's widow, says she is still awaiting an autopsy report. She sought unsuccessfully to have her husband's body held until she could arrange an independent autopsy. Lenore Matusiewicz believes a brain tumor that went untreated for years is to blame for her husband's violent actions.
The Feb. 11 shootings capped a years-long custody battle between Matusiewicz's son, David Matusiewicz, and his ex-wife.
