What is being done to a homeless person after they die?

Hello my friends. I cannot help but ask myself this question "what will happen to a homeless person after it dies?". I mean, does someone bury him with the traditional ceremonial practice or he is simply sent to a morgue and incinerated or is it something else? It makes me sad when I see homeless people on the streets barely capable of walking and perhaps on verge between life and death. Does any of you have any idea what will happen to a homeless person after it dies?

In India they are taken to Local Mortuary and if no body claims the body within the stipulated time under the permission of police and legal proceedings the body is donated to Medical colleges where it will be used by the students to study the anatomy and pathology! Thanks!

I do know that in my county in the state of Illinois, a homeless person's body is held at the medical examiner’s office for 60 days. If the deceased is believed to have been a veteran, it is kept for 90 days to verify military history. After two weeks, some bodies are donated for educational purposes. The rest are either buried or cremated. A variety of searches are done first to find out the identity of the person. The county pays for all of this. .
