I don't have to speculate but definitely he could have been tortured? I wonder what was in the casket now.

Why isn't there an independent investigation?
Lookie there....not all of his body was in the casket because it was a really bad situation. Goes perfectly with my comment I made earlier in this thread of:

It is not a bully tactic to keep a coffin closed if the body is not in good condition at all. A friend of mine, her dad's coffin was closed because he was in a crash and they had to identify each piece of his and others bodies by DNA. Those pieces they could not identify were put in a single coffin and buried in Arlington.

No one in the civilian world will ever hear the entire story. One, there are security clearances involved and you will only hear what is deemed to be unclassified.

What do you expect an independent investigation to prove?

That hes dead and the body is messed up? I think you can take that on faith, dude.

I thank you for the post. It makes me want to do that work...not meant in ANY morbid way. I think people that deal with death & dying should DO that work. I was an ER RN and Paramedic x 40 yrs and often had to tell families their loved one had died and then stayed with them when they viewed their family member...for as long as they needed.
I had heard similar reports of how the remains were shipped but never read this specific article. I am glad that our Armed Forces go to those lengths to make certain our Military is respected and honored at such an important time.

Are Open Casket Funerals part of American culture, as in the UK they are virtually unheard of.

Yes. Even at Jewish funerals. But the Rabbi can't enter the room until the casket is sealed.
Part of the funeral industry domination of the marketing of death grief is the effort to make the dead body look alive.

It's not something I have ever come across, and it's not normal practice in the UK.

Funerals are bad enough without seeing that.

All I expected from a funeral are a few nice hymns, some kind words from family, friends and a nicer service from the Clergy followed by a buffet and a few drinks afterwards.

Having to view the corpse is way to traumatic.
