At a cemetery, bones tossed like trash, and families in pain

A mass desecration of graves at a Connecticut cemetery has devastated dozens of families while police determine whether to file criminal charges.

Authorities say gravestones and human remains at Park Cemetery in Bridgeport were moved to make way for the newly dead.

A layer of dirt was placed in some areas to allow for new burials atop old ones. Human bones, casket pieces and old headstones were found in the woods.

Relatives estimate more than 100 graves were either disinterred or had new remains buried above them. They’re now trying to restore an oversight board and determine whether everyone is buried where they should be.

A state judge ousted the cemetery caretaker last week because of the conditions.

Police are investigating, but no arrests have been announced.
