People with relatives remains missing get payments
CHICAGO — People with loved ones buried at Burr Oak Cemetery outside Chicago are reacting with anger and disappointment to payments they are receiving from settlement of a case involving dug up graves and resold plots.
Charles Lewis says the $50 he received was half what he was promised. He said the payment was reduced because of attorney's fees and administrative costs.
Lewis' daughter's grave was among those that could not be located after it was discovered Burr Oak workers were allegedly digging up graves, dumping remains in a lot and reselling the plots. The cemetery was shut down in 2009.
