    Family comes forward to claim woman’s body

    The body of a woman labeled a pauper at last week’s Lafayette County Board of Supervisor’s meeting has been claimed and put to rest by family members in Bruce.

    Natalie “Nikki” Coleman was buried in Bruce Saturday in a family burial plot.

    Coleman was found dead in her University Arbors apartment on Oct. 28. On Monday, Lafayette County Coroner Rocky Kennedy told supervisors he could not locate family to pay for Coleman’s cremation. The board approved to foot the bill under the county’s Pauper Burial policy. (November 8, 2010, Page 2A)
