“Had it been between Virgie and HK, Virgie would have been given the body of her single daughter, and buried Anna in Texas within 4 days.”
I have no clue how you figure that. ‘Judge Hollywood’ said to HKS, ‘you came knocking on my door in the middle of the night’. But for Perper’s alarm sounding at the condition of the body, the hearing might still be going on.

True, HK was pounding on Seidlin's door (HE chose him, intentionally), to prevent Virgie Arthur from claiming her daughter's body.
Going by my own personal experience, when my unmarried brother died, his "live-in" had no legal weight to claim his body over my parents' or another direct relative over 18.
Since this is, my experience, and Virgie's relationship to Anna was the same as my parents to my deceased brother, then Virgie 'Should have been' given immediate legal right to the body over HK (the "live-in").
HK quickly claimed to Seidlin that the 'committment ceremony' (and phantom engagement and wedding plans) gave Him rights that superceded Virgie Arthurs' rights. (another premeditated move by HK) And off to the races they went.
Then Opri jumped in with a 20-day hold on the body for DNA, so I guess Seidlin decided to put all that time to good use.
