There was once a time that murderers, rapists and common criminals would be buried at crossroads, or their bodies would be pitched in a ditch. Anywhere except the regular cemeteries where everyone else was interred.
As the years went by things have changed, but not for everyone and not everywhere. There is a 1997 federal law which bans burying convicted criminals at veterans' cemeteries. So what happens when one slips through and ends up getting buried in a graveyard among other veterans? They get dug up and turned over to family, if there's one, other wise it's a pauper's grave.
