The Burr Oak Cemetery is a crime scene

The Burr Oak Cemetery Scandal in Illinois is the latest funeral  scandal in Illinois. 7,000 people have sought information on their loved ones graves. The Illinois funeral industry has been hit hard by scandal in 2008 and 2009.  The Illinois Funeral Directors Association preneed ponzi scheme has torn  the funeral business apart.

There is an integrity problem in the Funeral| Cemetery Business and it has been there for a long time. The Burr Oak Cemetery Scandal  shows how low the funeral business will go for a dollar.

CONSUMERS NEED TO BE AWARE HOW GREEDY THOSE IN THE FUNERAL INDUSTRY CAN BE AND ALWAYS CHECK UP ON THOSE THEY DO BUSINESS WITH.

From the Chicago, Tribune:

Relatives of more than 7,000 people buried in Burr Oak Cemetery are trying to find out whether the graves of their loved ones are among those desecrated, authorities said Sunday.

The number of angry mourners grew over the weekend as investigators locked the gates of the cemetery near Alsip and Illinois Comptroller Dan Hynes vowed to have the cemetery seized from owners.

Dan Hynes, the Comptroller of the State of Illinois is now calling for the licensing of  Cemetery operators, just as Funeral Directors are licensed. The Comptroller says he will ask a Judge to put the Cemertery into receicership.

Desecration of Graves is a terrible crime.
