Ill. cemetery workers accused in grisly plot/ Graves Of Emmitt Till, Willie Dixon

This story is beyond grisly and shows to what lengths some people will go to put money in their pockets at the expense of others.

This is famous cemetery were this is being done, just imagine what happens at the cemeteries no one's heard of, like most of them.

Family members search for the graves of relatives at Burr Oak Cemetery in Alsip, Ill., Thursday, July 9, 2009, after graves were discovered dug up Wednesday and bodies dumped into unmarked mass graves in an alleged scheme to resell the plots to unsuspecting members of the public.

"ALSIP, Ill. (AP) - Three gravediggers and a cemetery manager unearthed hundreds of corpses from a historic black cemetery south of Chicago, dumping some in a weeded area and double-stacking others in existing graves, in an elaborate scheme to resell the plots, authorities said Thursday. All four were charged with felonies.

Frantic relatives of the deceased descended on Burr Oak Cemetery - the final resting place of lynching victim Emmett Till and blues singers Willie Dixon and Dinah Washington - in hopes someone could tell them their loved ones' remains were not among the pile of bones that littered a remote area of the property in Alsip, 12 miles south of Chicago.

Some found apparently undisturbed plots, but others wandered, unable to locate loved ones.

'This is a mess. We can't find our people,' said Ralph Gunn, 54, of Chicago, who filled out a report for authorities after a futile search for the headstones of his brother and nephew."


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
