“We all looked down and we were looking at what apparently was a human foot and leg wrapped in plastic, with cloth wrapped around it, sticking out on top of my father’s casket” – Alonzo Butler
The workers at the cemetery supposedly dropped a pack of cigarettes and a cell phone into the open grave according to the family. They were removed.
The family might file lawsuit.
The caretaker Bill Plog told NY Daily News, “There was a casket. It deteriorated. You can purchase a concrete vault, but people don’t. That grave there is from 1969 . . . It’s unfortunate that this happened, but this is a graveyard.”
