Kat West: Calera Mom’s Funeral, Obit, And Burial Kept ‘Hush Hush’ After Murder


Kat West, a murdered Calera mother, was buried in a secret location TV Crime Sky has learned. An obituary and funeral arrangements for Kat West were not made public. A source revealed to TV Crime Sky that on January 22, the body of Kat West, aka Kathleen Dawn west, was transported from the coroner’s office to a local funeral home and buried in a small Alabama cemetery.


Kat West died in January of 2018 after a ‘date night’ with her husband. Police say the night of love went wrong after Jeff West struck his wife in the head with a wine bottle. Documents obtained from the courthouse by TV Crime Sky reveals Jeff West was arrested for her murder on Thursday, February 22.


TV Crime Sky contacted the funeral home, but they refused to confirm they provided funeral services for Kat West. A female representative said they have “no information about her.” TV Crime Sky visited Kat West’s burial location but will not publish the name since it appears the family wants the location kept a secret.


Kat West’s burial location will become public once the death certificate is made available after the trial. For now, Jeff West sits in the jail at the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department, where he’ll be held until trial.
