Massapequa family fears daughter's final resting place was disturbed
Having to bury a child is hard enough, but having to live through it again can be even harder. That?s what the Corradis are faced with Wednesday after discovering that their daughter?s grave may have been disrupted.
The Corradis say they found a stuffed animal they buried with their daughter eight years ago near her grave. According to the couple, workers at St. Charles Cemetery may have disturbed the grave while making room for another family member at the family plot.
The Corradis now want to dig up their daughter?s remains and make sure everything is ok, but they say the cemetery refuses to help them. A spokesperson for the Diocese of Brooklyn, which owns the cemetery, says the diocese is willing to cooperate with the Corradis but first need them to sign all of the necessary paperwork.
The Corradis say they have been advised by their attorney to not sign the document, because it would release the diocese from any liability. The diocese says the document they are asking the Corradis to sign is a standard release form.
