Family's protest calls for burial fraud laws

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville family is demanding change after a cemetery mix up caused their father to have to be disinterred and reburied.

Bill Dudley said when his family went to bury their recently deceased mother at Evergreen Cemetery in Lynnview next to their father, a veteran of World War II and the Korean Conflict, they found someone else buried in her grave.

On Father's Day, Dudley stood along Preston Street outside the gates of Evergreen with a sign calling for people to support new legislation to protect against burial site fraud.
