Woman drives from Houston to San Diego with dead husband's body

HOUSTON -- The wife of an elderly man made a difficult road trip, crossing several states with her dead husband's body.

The woman drove her RV and husband from Houston to her home in San Diego. That woman's 80-year-old husband died shortly after receiving treatment in Houston for a stroke.

Police say the woman tried contacting a mortuary along the way, but was told she needed a death certificate, so she continued driving. Police say she did nothing illegal and won't face any charges.
