    More than six weeks after a Texas man killed his former daughter-in-law and another woman at a Delaware courthouse before taking his own life, the state medical examiner has released his body.

    Lenore Matusiewicz, the gunman's widow tells NBC10's Harry Hairston that Mealey's Funeral Home picked up the body of 68-year-old Thomas Matusiewicz on Thursday morning.

    Matusiewicz says her husband's body was cremated.
    Lenore Matusiewicz is still awaiting the autopsy report. She sought unsuccessfully to have her husband's body held until she could arrange an independent autopsy.

    Lenore Matusiewicz believes a brain tumor that went untreated for years is to blame for her husband's violent actions.
    The Feb. 11 shootings capped a years long custody battle between Matusiewicz's son, David Matusiewicz, and his ex-wife.

    The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
