Rev. Steve Jones, left, and Father Dan Mallette, right, both chaplains for the Cook County Sherrifs Department, say prayers and bless the ground, by sprinkling holy water, at Burr Oak Cemetery in Alsip. Authorities say that, over the last several years, more than 100 bodies at Alsip's Burr Oak Cemetery were dumped "in a massive pile on cemetery grounds" so the plots could be resold. The cemetery's new owners alerted authorities after finding discrepancies in records.
