Archaeologists uncover more bodies at Burr Oak

Archaeologists uncover more bodies at Burr Oak

This was the big controversy within the past two or so years. When this became news as a result of a scheme to dig up graves and then resell the plots that the bereaved families had purchased. It's real sick and even worse this is the place where lynching victim Emmitt Till had been buried.

According to this story from Chicago Public Radio, they're still finding bones at this cemetery. Only that this time, they're finding them in empty and thought to be unused plots. SICK!
