That's not nearly as interesting as this, though it might render most people speechless.

Very unfortunate.Authorities discover original casket of Emmett Till
Posted: 11:41 AM ET
(CNN) — Authorities discovered Emmett Till’s original casket in a dilapidated garage at a historic cemetery where four people are accused of digging up graves and reselling them, police said Friday.
“There was wildlife living inside of it,” Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart said of the casket, which he said was found in the corner of a garage filled with lawn care equipment and other “piles of things” at Burr Oak Cemetery in Alsip, Illinois.
“We very quickly came to the conclusion it was the original casket that Emmett Till was buried in,” Dart said.
Honestly, anyone who would defile the resting place of the dead deserve some of the harshest of punishments. It doesn't get much lower than that.

My husband and I have always wondered about a cemetary doing this. I mean they are in the business for profit but you only have so much room available and then it's just it. I am surprised actually this hasn't been discovered before.
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
