    In 2009, four employees at Burr Oak Cemetery dug up more than 200 graves, dumped the bodies into unmarked mass graves. The 200 plots were later resold. The reselling of plots was a scheme that went back to 2004.

    It is possible that Dennis H. Tillman, Sr's grave may have been a victim of this desecration.
