Cemetery operator arrested for poor record keeping

Posted: Updated:

Police have arrested a former cemetery owner for not keeping accurate records.

Families reported missing grave markers and broken headstones at the American Memorial Cemetery in Grand Prairie.

The State of Texas looked into the lengthy list of customer complaints, including some who could not determine where their loved ones had been buried.

Gerald Weatherall surrendered to police on Friday on charges of violating state interment codes. The crime is a Class A misdemeanor, which carries a short jail term. However, a conviction likely means probation and a fine.
