HALLMARK CITY, Texas — A funeral home in the Houston suburb of Hallmark City has confirmed that there were no major issues with the deaths of five people during the weekend.
The Houston Chronicle reported Friday that the funeral home did not report a single death.
“We are working with the family, and we have no reason to believe there was anything wrong,” the Hallmark-owned funeral home, D.E.W. Funeral Home in the 1500 block of North Main Street, said in a statement.
The Associated Press has reached out to the funeral homes office for comment.

The spokeswoman said none of the complaints had resulted in any investigations.
The funeral homes, which do not provide burial services, do not have the right to refuse to provide services.
The funeral homes have been in Houston since July 1 and have had six deaths in the city, according to data from the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The death toll has not been released, and the Harris Fire Department did not immediately respond to a request for information about the deaths.
The AP has not independently verified the accuracy of the data.
