Cincinnati breaking state law on indigent burials

 Article 25 - USA 11 June 2012

People who die in Cincinnati with no one to pay for their burial are supposed to have concrete markers bearing their names, ages and date of death, according to state law. Instead, their cremated remains have only numbers on small metal rings. What’s worse, 19 bodies, unclaimed and unnamed, await cremation and burial. (1879 Words) - By Gregory Flannery
