Remains cannot be exhumed without cemetery’s permission, judge rules

A judge on Wednesday ruled that the family of Indiana bank robber John Dillinger will not be allowed to exhume the 85-year-old corpse from its resting place. Dillinger’s nephew Michael C. Thompson filed a lawsuit in August after a public back-and-forth between the family and the cemetery, which has opposed digging up the body. The court ruled that the cemetery owner needs to give consent.

Why does the cemetery need to give consent? They sold the plot to the family, presumably, so it's not the cemetery's property any longer.

So you sell the remains of your loved ones, except you in fact pay. It all makes sense in today's Land of The Free®. A company has owned you from birth to death.
