Parent died, my sibling will not give any info as to what happened?

To add on what Ms. Singleton said above, if the will does not specify that the executor has rights regarding the disposition of remains, you may still have rights there. If no will has been filed with the county, remind your sister that she has an obligation to do so even if she doesn't petition for probate and appointment.
This can get complex, so if you're not comfortable handling it yourself, reach out for a real-time consultation.
You can contact the place she is being cremated and have the same rights as your sister to make decisions. In addition, a power of attorney ends at death. If your mom had a will and named your sister executor, she would have to go to court and open the probate in order to be officially appointed as executor. if no will, then you can be appointed administrator as the son/daughter in the same sense as your sister. once the probate is opened, you can obtain an inventory and notice of special proceedings. this can include looking into what happened with your mother. You should ask the cremation facility for a copy of the death certificate to see cause of death.
