Second Arrest Made in Connection with Galilee Memorial Gardens Cemetery

As reported by WMC Memphis, a Galilee Memorial Gardens Cemetery (“Galilee”) bookkeeper was arrested on March 29, 2014, the second arrest in connection with the Galilee scandal that has been featured on local and national news throughout 2014. According to investigators, bookkeeper Corey Taylor used Galilee office records to hide multiple bodies buried in single graves. He was charged with theft of property and the abuse of a corpse. Per investigators, Taylor also witnessed certain criminal acts occur at Galilee Memorial Gardens Cemetery, including another Galilee employee crushing caskets with a backhoe in order to make room for additional caskets.
