Caskets Found as Workers Demolish Mausoleum
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.
