Ghoul Back in Jail

Mark Seepe is back in jail for violating his probation.  The ghoul pleaded guilty to six counts of embezzling pre-paid cremation services funds for his own use.  It was also reported during his prosecution that he "mishandled" the remains of the deceased.  Mishandled was too polite a word but the reporter was trying to show some respect to the family members.  Seepe served all of 18 months of a 10-year prison sentence thanks to one of Chris Epps's early supervised release miracles.





Monica Hernandez reported at WLBT ten years ago:

The search for Mark Seepe ended Wednesday at the Red Roof Inn off High Street in Jackson. The Attorney General's Public Integrity Division watched the former Jackson funeral director's room through the night before he was busted for failing to appear in court Monday.

"I think if he could hop on a plane to Barbados and not pay for any of this, he would be fine and he would have no problem sleeping at night and living the high life," said Katrina Jameson, a former client of Seepe's funeral home.
In another twist, authorities captured Seepe's girlfriend, 46-year-old Angela Darlene Bishop. She's charged with Hindering Prosecution for trying to prevent Seepe's arrest at the motel.

The AG's office said Seepe embezzled thousands of dollars for pre-needs funeral arrangements. He's facing six counts of embezzlement in Hinds County and two counts in Rankin County. His bond was set at a total of $40,000.
When Seepe was first arrested on embezzlement charges in February, Attorney General Jim Hood told WLBT the crime may be more common than some people might think.

"They're supposed to go put this money that you give them into a trust fund, but they deplete the fund is what's happening. They take the money out or they don't put the money in and spend your money," said Hood.  The investigation into Mark Seepe Funeral Directors and Crematorium began just over a year ago, when a former crematorium employee raised questions about how Seepe was handling remains.

"There was no doubt whatsoever that he had not done what he was paid to do," said former employee Lori Wilkinson. "These people are getting boxes of who knows what.

Wilkinson snapped photos that appeared to show piles of bones in buckets. Then, WLBT found what appeared to be bone fragments in a dumpster outside Seepe's business. Seepe denied everything. 

"I'm just trying to get a whole lot of misunderstandings straightened out," Seepe told WLBT while Jackson police officers searched through Seepe's dumpster in March of 2008.

Because a gag order is barring anyone involved in the case from talking to the media, there is no word yet on why Seepe spent the night in a motel or what tipped off investigators. Court documents show





Remember this ghoul when people screech about turning "non-violent" offenders loose.

Man, a brand new full size truck for under $20,000. Those were the days.

"Remember this when people talk about turning non-violent offenders loose"?????


The man embezzled money - at least that is what he was convicted of. (And, KF, he was not convicted by a Hinds County Grand Jury - they may have indicted him, but a regular jury did the convicting.)

What bothers you about it is that he mishandled remains. I agree - that is a terrible issue, although frankly I don't give a damn about what happens to my remains after I die. But, it was still a terrible action - that as best I can tell he was not convicted of or was sentenced for doing.

Don't know what he did to break his probation - but my question is - why does this raise the issue you throw out at the end. Long term sentencing of non-violent offenders? Do you think someone should serve ten years for embezzlement of $40,000?

Kingfish said...

Absolutely. If he had waved a knife and never touched anyone and stole $50 bucks, he would get a longer sentence. Someone who steals six figures should go to jail longer than a year or two. Pen, gun, or knife, it makes no difference. This is where your latent racism comes into play. If the perp steals with a knife or gun, well, throw the book at him. If he steals with a pen and steals alot more money, well, he is one of your own class so don't lock him up but for a short period of time.

When was the last time a store in New Orleans advertised in the Clarion Ledger?

Anonymous said...

KF, Because details matter, $40k is five figures, not six.

Yes, I think that stealing money at the point of a knife, gun, or axe handle is worse than embezzling, no matter the amount.

But that was not the question raised - it dealt with the release of non-violent criminals. So I take it from your response that you would be happy to have those that steal $50 from you on the street with a knife stuck in your face released early? Or, you just think everybody should be stuck in prison for long sentences - violent or not?

(And, BTW, there is nothing racial in my comments or questions - you try to inject racial issue ignoring the fact that I was questioning violent vs. non-violent. Believe there are plenty of non-violent offenders in jail today of races different than Seepe. But I realize it makes you happy, so keep your colored eyeshades on.)

Kingfish said...

I meant six figures. Had Klauser and Leonard in mind.

Anonymous said...

Oh. So, we are supposed to read your mind and automatically transfer from the case presented - where there was an embezzlement and you are questioning the non-violent prisoner being released - to two other cases of embezzlement? Sorry, I missed finding those lines to read between.

Anonymous said...

Left out of all this discussion is what did the creep do to violate his probation? Hope it was really, really good (for his sake) since he is now back enjoying the hospitality in CMCF.

Kingfish said...

Yup. You are supposed to read my mind .

Anonymous said...

Well, they(law) took away everything from him, he is not killer, he is not a monster. Yes, probably he was guilty and he was punished a lot, BUT why he has to pay for that mistake all his life. It's not fear, it's very cruel. I met him in Church in Ocean Springs. He is very nice person, he is kind and polite. He is a great musician. Why you want to finish him and dump him to an abyss? Better do it with people who is really criminal and killer

Anonymous said...

He most certainly is guilty, he decided to steal money from families. He decided to not cremate people properly. He decided to keep ashes in a big 50 gallon Drum. He decided to throw people's love ones in the garbage. He decided to do it all.not to mention he lied about all of it. Oh and by the way, he decided to violate hI ma so glad you feel he is a great man because he goes to church and is a good musician but he is a scum bag.

Anonymous said...

may be, he was , but he paid a lot for that. He've lost everything. I am sure it's very high price.
and remember "don't judge and won't be judged"

Anonymous said...

I bet you would feel different if he cremated your mother, fathe, brother, sister or son and then threw the ashes in a dumpster so they would end up in a land fill. But like you said, he was a good Christian man and attended your church in Ocean Springs. Give me a break. You don't know this man at all, that's why everyone calls him Mark Creep. But like you said e sure is a great musician. Oh and a wonderful liar to.

Unknown said...

May be I dont know him so well like you. why he is arrested again? What he've done?

Anonymous said...

Why don't you take some time to do some research on him. Or simply read the Clarion Ledger article that is attached. You might learn something about this scum bag

Anonymous said...

what for? I know his past. I just dont know why he was arrested 8 days ago. Couldnt find any information.

Anonymous said...

He was arrested because he violated his parole.....scum bag seepe

Unknown said...

So, you dont know anything. Why do you hate him so much? I am confused: Who is more dangerous to society? people, demanding blood and hating, or unfortunate person who has lost everything in his life, because he made a mistake and have to pay all his life.

Anonymous said...

Obviously you know only one side of this scum bag, unfortunately so many people know much more. I do not care if he is a good Christian and plays music at your church in ocean springs. This man robbed people of their finances at a difficult time in their life, when they were most vulnerable. Think about that. He stole money for people who placed their trust in them to handle their funerals and he lied about it. Then he cremated people improperly. He didn't even return people's ashes to them. They were commingled with cats, dogs, other people. And he lied about it. When he was caught, he threw those bones in the garbage. And he lied about it. Then after being arrested, he posted bail, then he ran. Yet another lie. This man deserves to be held accountable for his actions. Which he was not, he was given a second chance and he blew it. I understand you know only one side of him. Think of the other, and ask yourself how you would feel if this happened to your mother, father, brother, or son. Would you being saying the glorious things? I wait for an honest response to how you would feel if he gave you an urn of cement instead of someone you loved

This man prevented me from having my grandfathers ashes spread around the beautiful fig trees that he planted in our backyard. He desecrated the remains of my grandfather, yet you think he should only get a few years in prison? It's not just about the money, but also the immense pain he has caused the families of the deceased people that he desecrated.

Anonymous said...

Also, you say that he is not a monster? He is worse than a monster. This man is a psychopathic sociopath that can comfortably stab you in the back while he smiles in your face and pretends to be a good person. I'm good friends with his son and he can tell you just how much of a monster that Mark Seepe truly is. He beat his children on a daily basis and cheated on his wife on multiple occasions. This man will and deserves to rot in hell if there is truly a heaven and hell.

Anonymous said...

He also borrows money from friends to pay his debts and then disappears without a word. Real friends don't screw those that help in a time need. I wish I had known more about him from the start.......he is and always will be a con-man, swindler and snake!! Not sure how the man sleeps with himself at night........must be no conscience.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
