GPR Locates Body Parts

by admin in Blog

Our company has surveyed many cemeteries to map grave sites. Usually this was to construct an accurate site plan of marked and unmarked grave sites and available plots. However, last year we were contracted to conduct a ground penetrating radar survey at a cemetery near Chicago to assist in pending legal proceedings. We waited to publish this post till the case in the courts was concluded.

This started as a result of a raid on the Burr Oak Cemetery. Investigators found chunks of burial vaults, pieces of pine boxes that had been used as caskets decades ago, and even a skeleton wearing a suit and tie inside an empty burial vault, with no casket in sight. The remains included two pieces of skull fragments and part of a femur bone, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office said.

In July 2009, authorities charged 4 Burr Oak Cemetery employees with digging up human remains from graves for resale, and dumping the remains elsewhere in the cemetery. All remain free on bond while awaiting trial on charges of dismembering a human body, a Class X felony, the sheriff’s office said.
