Fritchey: County burials enough to turn your stomach

April 8, 2011

Cook County Commissioner John Fritchey discussed his proposal to change the way the county handles burials. As previously discussed in The Bulldog, Fritchey offered an ordinance at the County Board meeting yesterday.

“We have uncovered situations which we have had multiple bodies put in the same burial shell,” he said. “Human remains mixed with animal remains … caskets buried eight deep, turning part of the cemetery, essentially, into a human landfill,” Fritchey tells WBBM NewsRadio 780’s Bernie Tafoya.
