Bodies Found at Tri-State Crematorium
Bodies were discovered on the grounds of the Tri-State Crematorium in Walker County, Georgia. As the investigation widened, hundred more bodies were found and the owner arrested. The bodies had been delivered to him for cremation, but the incinerator he used for that purpose had broken and he reportedly could not afford to fix it, but had still been taking money for cremations, and returning people dust in jars.
