SHOCKING

Chicago's Mass-Grave Scandal

The loss of a loved one is burden enough, but then to discover that the body may have been unearthed and thrown in a mass grave to make room for other coffins? The relatives of the 7,000 buried at the infamous Burr Oak Cemetery in Illinois are inundating local authorities with their concerns, and it is doubtful they will be allayed anytime soon. So far, the police believe 300 bodies were illegally exhumed and put in a mass grave so that the cemetery could resell the plots. Now, because of Burr Oak's poor record keeping, authorities must identify over 100,000 graves.
