Remains Exposed at Colored Cemetery in Rayne

At the Rayne Colored Cemetery some say the dead are not resting in peace or with dignity.
Verna Henderson and Jean Gaspard say they've crossed some very disturbing sites, from human skulls lying around to decaying tombs covered with tarp.
"This tomb here shows the whole body. You can even see their hands resting when laid to rest," said Henderson.
We first reported on this issue back in 2009, but it's still a problem that hasn't been fixed properly.
We're told local church members are responsible for maintaining the cemetery.
Because of calls and complaints, the Louisiana Cemetery Board, in New Orleans is investigating.
