MSNBC just reported from Andrea Mitchell, that First Lady Michelle Obama's father, Frazier Robinson III was buried at the Burr Oak Cemetery. This cemetery has become a national scandal due to over 300 bodies being disturbed, tossed and the cemetery plot, RESOLD. Nothing is known, yet, if his remains were disturbed.
Authorities believe at least 300 bodies at Burr Oak were illegally dug up and discarded in a pile so their gravesites could be resold. Thousands of other dead buried at the cemetery, including babies, have not been accounted for by their survivors.

"Given the unconscionable discovery at Burr Oak, I don't want to take a chance that similar circumstances could be occurring under Perpetua's management at its other Illinois cemetery," Hynes said. "The fraud and betrayal of consumers by Burr Oak's employees warrant the revocation of all of Perpetua's licenses."
