Missing family, crushed caskets,
stacked bodies...

Owner of Galilee Memorial Gardens Arrested and Charged with Theft and Abuse of a Corpse
Professor Oliver has been accused of raping a student at Rust College.

The death of a family member is sad enough, but when the trust of the cemetery where the loved is interred is destroyed, it becomes abuse. Jemar Lambert, owner of Galilee Memorial Gardens, has been arrested for theft and abuse. It is reported he improperly buried multiple bodies in the same graves and sold plots located on land he did not even own. He is suspected of selling as much as $60,000 in non-existent plots.

Have You Purchased a Plot or do You Have a Loved One Interred at Galilee Memorial Gardens?


There are lots of questions. Let's get answers!
Were you a victim of sexual abuse at Rust College?

From the reports we have received, there may be dozens of people callously buried in mass graves at Galilee Memorial Gardens. News media has reported that workers would drive over grave sites with heavy tractors to crush the coffins so there would be room to bury more people on top of the already buried.

Theft and abuse may have been going on before 2011 until late January 2014 when the cemetery was forcibly closed while prosecutors and the state conduct an investigation.

The thought that this type of crime could happen to loved ones is just too much to imagine. The Cochran Firm believes that you should receive answers to any questions you may have. If it is determined that you were sold a "bogus" plot or that your loved one was mistreated in or after burial we also believe that you should be adequately and justly compensated.
