Herrin City Council votes to remove judge order on cemetery excavation

Posted: Updated:
HERRIN, IL (KFVS) -

The Herrin City Council voted unanimously Sunday night to go back to court and remove a judge ordered stay preventing any excavation work in the Herrin City Cemetery.

Herrin Massacre victims were buried in the cemetery in 1922 in the Potter's Field section. City records show that some people who have been buried in that section in recent years, could be buried on top of old graves.
