dollofvoodoo's blog: "Mindless Ramblings Of Me"

The man appointed to take over the day-to-day running of Burr Oak Cemetery said he doesn't expect to reopen it to the public for another 10 days.

Speaking after a 2 1/2 hour meeting with cemetery staff and investigators this afternoon, Roman Szabelski said he should be able to help most families who have relatives buried at Burr Oak find the graves of their buried loved ones when the cemetery re-opens Aug. 1.

"We're going to need a little more time," he said.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart said earlier this week that he'd hoped to reopen the cemetery on Monday.

Also today, Gov. Pat Quinn announced his cemetery oversight task force in response to the grisly scandal at Burr Oak Cemetery in Alsip, the Tribune's Clout Street blog reports.

The new governor picked nine civic leaders to look at the management of for-profit cemeteries and propose new regulations and consumer protection laws.

But Quinn's cemetery move already is part of a political controversy surrounding the issue at Burr Oak, where officials estimate at least 300 bodies were dug up so graves could be resold.
