Cemetery workers accused of digging up graves, reselling plots (CNN)

There was an article on CNN's website this morning about cemetery workers digging up graves and reselling the plots. The cemetery in question was Burr Oak Cemetery in Alsip, Illinois, located about 20 miles south of Chicago, a historic, African-American cemetery. Those involved apparently dug up older, less-visited graves and dumped the bodies. The plots were resold and the cash was pocketed. Luckily police have busted the ring...but the damage is already done.
