Improper Removal of Bones May Lead to Charges

According to Cemetery Administrator Wayne Usher, the employee from Coye’s Funeral Home has since admitted to the mistake.  But this afternoon, Usher met with City Council attorneys to see if charges can be brought against the persons responsible for the incident.

 

On the Phone: Wayne Usher, Cemetery Administrator

“It gets worst. You do not just take a body out of a grave. There are rules and regulations for that. This grave was already sealed. So for you to unseal a grave without any legal or any authority for doing that; that’s not legal and also it is not proper. But I am not going to comment any further along those lines because we are going to look at this thing from a legal standpoint this afternoon.”

“Sir, can I just ask one other question? When you say that that is in relation to Miss Foreman’s body being removed after the grave had been sealed. But I am understanding that there is also a concern where the tomb that was wrongly opened, that some remains were removed from that tomb. And that there is a request for those remains to be reburied. Could you talk to that one?”

 

On the Phone: Wayne Usher

“Yes that is also true because when Mister Lino was unearthing the tomb to clear it for the other burial, there were bones in there form the person who was buried there. Thankfully Mister Moody, thankfully, people from our council got wind of what was happening and we have secured those bones. We have them safely stored and those bones will be returned to its rightful place.”
