In a scheme that one law enforcement official called "beyond startling and revolting," workers at a historic African-American cemetery near Chicago are alleged to have dug up more than 100 graves so that they could be resold to unsuspecting buyers.
Officials said that workers at Burr Oak cemetery disinterred bodies, dumped remains and then resold the plots, pocketing the cash. The cemetery is home to some notable figures from Chicago area history.
The workers reportedly targeted older graves that weren't visited anymore, but officials said other graves might have been targeted.
At least four people involved are facing numerous felony charges, officials said.
