CHICAGO (CBS) Cook County sheriffs officials have found bodies stacked on top of each other some buried eight at a time at a south suburban cemetery.
As CBS 2s Susanna Song reports, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart says Homewood Memorial Gardens, at 600 Ridge Rd. in Homewood, desecrated the bodies of people who couldnt afford to purchase burial plots.

The price of cement overshoes too high?
More voters for Rahm too ..
“We know where the bodies are buried.....
Yes, they do!
Gonna be mighty crowded come judgement day.
“Hey Joe, thats my sweater you’re wearin!”
My grandfather died in 1920 and he is buried somewhere in an “indigent” portion of a cemetery.
There is nothing nefarious about this practice.
profit maximization.... Chicago style.
Instead of stacking them why don’t they cremate them all. Stacking has to have an odor.
They were discoverd while following an “organizing for America” paid volunteer.
Must have found this out during the latest census. Eight voters using the same address with different last names.
If true, then it falls back onto the state for not making that stipulation. Other countries dig up the dead and reuse plots. There will come a day when there will be no room for cemeteries and plots will be too expensive for the average family. Many government and local projects (fact - a school football field and a lake) have disturbed old cemeteries and it's a shame how many bodies were never moved or identified.
Heck, they all voted for Mark Dayton in Minnesota, as well. Twice.
Most cities have a "potters field" where they bury homeless and other deadbeats.
Is society supposed to foot the bill for burial plots now too?
This is after all, the “Chicago Way” and Illinois is a part of Chicago. (A subservient part).
SRO at the cemetery ?????
Damn! 8 votes for the price of one!
I know a lady who will be buried on top of her husband at the National Cemetery in San Antonio. I think it’s common practice.
“There is nothing nefarious about this practice.”
No there isn’t. Just this morning I was looking at cemetery records where my great grandfather was buried and saw some entries noted “Potters Field”. Had only seen that name in historical novels before.
****disturbed old cemeteries and it’s a shame how many bodies were never moved or identified.****
“YOU MOVED THE CEMETERY BUT YOU LEFT THE BODIES BEHIND DIDN’T YOU! YOU ONLY MOVED THE HEADSTONES! WHY!WHY!”
