NEWS:Hynes Knew about Burr Oak Grave desecration +”Silvy Cotton” in 2003|Your Funeral Guy

30 Jan

HYNES KNEW

It is being reported that State of Illinois Comptroller-Dan HYNES- knew about the Grave Desecrations at Burr Oak Cemetery in 2003.

Evidently Hyne’s Office became aware of Grave Desecration’s at Burr Oak, and his office  contacted  Silvy Cotton the then 03 Manager of Burr Oak Cemetery

This has been reported by the Capitol Fax Blog and ABC News.

IS THIS THE SMOKING GUN IN THE RACE FOR

ILLINOIS GOVERNOR?

CLICK HERE FOR AN ABC VIDEO REPORT.

I reported the  Silvy Cotton  part of the story on this blog that Cotton was involved with the Burr Oak Cemetery desecration in that she hired the arrested  2009 manager at Burr Oak Cemetery. I also stated she was involved in the Deborah Kellom funeral home Scam in St. Louis that took place at another Perpetua  Facillity with a 2009 conviction.

The source of the blog post came from one individual in St.Louis who wished to remain anonymous. THE OTHER SOURCE  WAS FROM THE CHICAGO AREA WITH A LOVED ONE AT BURR OAK-anonymous.. Other sources in St Louis, and CHICAGO would not confirm or deny a Silvy Cotton connection to Kellom and Wade Funeral Home or Burr Oak Cemetery.

When threatened by Silvy Edmomds Cotton  i retracted the blog because I had 2 sources, that would not back up my Statements. I deleted the post. Here is my Email Exchange with  Silvy Cotton,

Mr. Burkhardt,
Your Blog incorrectly states that I hired Debora Kellom and that I am still apart of the Burr Oak/ Perpetua Management. Neither of these statements is true.  I have not been a part of the Perpeuta Management team since January 2004.  I demand that you correct those statements and will monitor any such future claims.  If these incorrect statements persist, I will consider legal action.
Sincerely,
Slivy Edmonds Cotton

Hello

The Reference in question has been deleted even though there are 2 sources that state otherwise. If there is a chance it is not true it gets deleted..Always.

Joshua Slocum is involved here-that always calls for questions.

Were you a part of Portico LLM Enterprises? Or are they suing you?

What was your connection to Burr Oak? CedarPark?

You are named in the class action Lawsuit-Burr Oak Cemetery Why? I will continue to follow the money in this horrific situation and determine beyond question who is involved.

Reports show Slivy Edmonds Cotton, who remains listed under Perpetua management, and Portico LLM Enterprises took over the Pet Cemetery of Tucson in 2008.

Portico sued the former owner this summer, alleging fraud and misconduct, including selling headstones that were not provided and breaking into Portico offices to delete files.

At Perpetua, Edmonds Cotton oversaw Cedar Park, 12540 S. Halsted St. She told the Daily Southtown in 2000 she was inspired by Cedar Park’s uniqueness and beauty.——-Daily Southtown. http://www.southtownstar.com/burr-oak/1723194,081909perpetua.article

NOW I BELIEVED MY SOURCES AND ALWAYS THOUGHT SILVY COTTON WAS A KEY FIGURE IN THE BURR OAK CEMETERY HORROR(SCANDAL)

FUNERAL INDUSTRY |FUNERAL NEWS BLOG BY YOUR FUNERAL GUY

It is true that Comptroller DAN  HYNES only had the authority to regulate money-BUT WHY DID HE NOT TURN IT OVER TO LAW ENFORCEMENT IN 2003?

Memos and emails obtained by the I-Team reveal that top officials in the Illinois comptroller’s office knew in 2003 there was a problem with unearthed human remains at Burr Oak. And according to a confidential five-page report written by Burr Oak’s CEO in 2003, cemetery officials had reason to believe the grave-selling scandal had already started.

    You’re close to how it all started, but you were wrong on your assertion that Slivy Edmonds Cotton hired Debora Kellom. Debora was actually hired by the predecessor company (3G Corp) before Ms. Cotton arrived on the scene. HOWEVER, in a conversation with Debora after Ms. Cotton came on board, I was told by Debora that Ms. Cotton indicated that she was going to groom and mentor her for advancement within the organization…

    Finding out info on Slivy Cotton and Deborah Kellom has been difficult, no one wants to be named,

    I believe the above comment is correct, that Ms Kellom was hired by Wade Funeral Home prior to Ms Cotton’s involvement.

    I can state that as of circa 2001-2, Ms Kellom WAS, at least in effect, if not formal title, Slivy’s Chief Operating Officer and the number 2 person in Perpetua, in addition to her role at Wade.

    Just to confirm my above comment, I note that this August 2002 newspaper article in which she is interviewed (along with Slivy) identifies Deborah as Director of Operations for Perpetua
