Grisly Pictures Shown in Grave Desecration Case

The Nation | IN BRIEF / FLORIDA

December 21, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Attorneys suing a cemetery company accused of recycling graves showed grisly photos and video footage of crushed burial vaults and human remains discarded in the woods.

They also presented internal documents they say show Menorah Gardens & Funeral Chapels in West Palm Beach and its owner, Houston-based Service Corporation International, were aware of the grave desecrations. SCI is the world's largest cemetery company.

The attorneys represent 10 families who say their loved ones were dug up and dumped in the woods, buried in the wrong graves or buried in vaults on top of each other instead of side by side as the families had paid for.
