Robbers Strip 300 Graves At Historic Black Chicago Cemetery
The years-long scheme was carried out by the cemetery's manager and three gravediggers who sold the "used" graves so they could pocket the fees rather than pass them along to the Arizona-based owners.

"They would excavate a grave, excavate the entire site and then they would proceed to dump the remains wherever they found a place to do it in the back of the cemetery."
They would also sometimes leave the remains in the grave and "pound them down and put someone else on top," Dart said.
