A sad story on CNN describes apparently illegal actions by cemetery workers in Alsip, Illinois, 20 miles south of Chicago. The crime was reported by the cemetery owners who became suspicious. At least four cemetery workers have been accused of digging up graves, dumping bodies, reselling the burial plots, and pocketing the cash.
The Burr Oak Cemetery is the final resting place of lynching victim Emmett Till, blues legend Dinah Washington and some Negro League baseball players. Sadly, some of those remains have been moved and identification is probably impossible.
