This article is in reference to the situation involving Rose City Cemetery and Funeral Home.
News Release:

A couple of months ago, I wrote an article concerning a mortuary worker and allegations he accused his general manager of, Michael J. Orcutt, of -- allegations of corpse abuse and racism. I have followed the case and have seen the political and professional dilapidation that Floyd Decker received and also have discovered that the Oregon Mortuary and Cemetery Board have decided to "take some action" against Michael J. Orcutt and Rose City Cemetery and Funeral Home.

My article, entitled, "Mortuary Worker May Be Right" was disregarded by the industry but now it seems that such was the truth. The Oregon Mortuary and Cemetery Board, according to Board sources, have decided to "Continue their investigation against Orcutt and Rose City Cemetery and Funeral Home".

Orcutt was accused of "corpse abuse" and "racism" by Floyd Decker, a former apprentice funeral director for Rose City. After being terminated for inquring about whether the board had ever investigated, Decker was fired soon after for "using an unauthorized computer."

The simple fact that Michael J. Orcutt and Rose City Cemetery and Funeral Home have been found to be perhaps guilty since "action has decided to be taken" says something that collaboarates Decker's story. Decker, no doubt, is an ex-criminal with warrents out for his arrest in Idaho, but just because you have darkness . . . does not mean that you are dark.

Someone who knows you and Pam

Floyd, I see that you have sobered up for a moment or at least took a break from the bottle. You are still waiting for unemployment and are still pretending to be Sara Parrish. When you finally decide to leave this state and stop pretending to be a writer maybe this wonderful place called Oregon will be a better place to live. We cannot see you leave soon enough. I have read ALL of your articles and you are not the expert you think or claim to be. You are causing more grief and despair then you would have ever imagined. You are truly a sick and psychotic individual who is probably not taking your medication (Not a good idea for someone like you) this shows in your behavior and your writing skills. I really feel sorry for your girl friend because she, according to her friends, is afraid of you and is afraid to talk against you.
Floyd, you are closer to a 72-hour lock down and a Thorazine drip then you realize. It is difficult to determine which personality has come out this time. Are they all aware of each other? Are new ones still developing? You really need to take your medication!

How are the bars you frequent when you are lonely at night? Do the men still claim to fantasize about you? Does Pam still go with you and pretend that she wants you? You know she doesn't want you. No one does except the gay men you fantasize about. They are not real except in your mind. You are truly a sick and bizarre individual. This time you have gone too far.

The Knowing One

All of this BS that this person has printed has been disproven, and the OSMCB has dismissed all of these allegations against the mortuary manager of Rose City Funeral Home. Thank God this is over. One call to the OSMCB will let you know this information is factual.
