May 24, 1997 – Madison, WI
The Resurection Cemetery neglected the mausoleum for many years. Water damage caused the inner
roof to cave in, covering the crypts on the floor with stony rubble. Vandals cracked open the
crypts in the wall. Animals lived inside. The cemetery decided to dismantle it despite offers
by various individuals to donate their time to save it. During demolition the bodies of 4 people,
two children and two adults, were discovered to still be inside.
