Style Weekly is reporting that Oliver P. Chiles Jr. of Chiles Funeral Home on Fairmount Avenue has had his director’s license suspended by the state board:

A longtime Church Hill funeral director allowed the body of a deceased man to decompose and embalmed it without permission, according to the state board that has suspended the director’s license.

The body of the deceased — called “Client A” — was delivered to Chiles Funeral Home from Virginia Commonwealth Medical Center on Sept. 18, 2010, according to the board’s findings of fact. It was left unrefrigerated for 72 hours and began to decompose, the findings state.
