Sources: Allegations Continue Against Sussex Co. Funeral Dir.

Posted: Updated:

BRIDGEVILLE, Del. - A Sussex County funeral director is now at the center of a fraud investigation for allegedly posing as one of her client's relatives and reportedly stealing thousands of dollars.

Sources close to the investigation say these aren't the only allegations they're looking into. It appears there are a number of cases being reported from in and out-of-state.

Deborah Harris-Nock was indicted last month on charges including "theft by false pretense." Investigators say she filed paperwork that fraudulently named herself the executor of the estate of the deceased. It's alleged that Harris-Nock took more than $9,000.

The attorney general's office requested for the Board of Funeral Services to temporarily suspend her funeral license until the investigation is finished.

WMDT spoke with the office on Wednesday and they said the criminal investigation is still ongoing and cannot comment on any new allegations. A meeting will be held Tuesday to consider Harris-Nock's suspension.

WMDT reached out to Harris-Nock and her lawyer on Wednesday. Harris-Nock declined an interview again.

Investigators are asking anyone with similar allegations concerning Deborah Harris-Nock to call Georgetown Police at 302-856-6613.
