nekom: How do you just go ahead and bury someone wherever? How do you even get the body from the coroner/funeral home if you aren't a proper cemetery?
eraser8: At least she didn't want to be "stuffed and put on the couch as a constant reminder of [their] marital vows."
basemetal: Right next to where the bird dog is married?
The My Little Pony Killer: Even a neighbor who got into a fight with Davis over the gravesite - Davis said he punched the man - isn't comfortable with limiting what a homeowner can do with his property.Yes, this neighbor is so uncomfortable with telling a homeowner what he can and cannot do on his property that he felt the need to get into a fistfight over it. Riiiight.
Krymson Tyde: This is the neighboring town to the town I grew up in. This fellow applied for a permit to bury his wife in the front yard while his wife's body was in cold storage at the local funeral home. His request was denied and he was told no, you can't do that. Apparently he then convinced the funeral home that everything was cool and to bring the corpse on home.Now there is this huge movement to just let her rest in peace, that the local government should stay out of it, never mind that he broke the law to begin with.By the way, this is in a residential area, not in an isolated area.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: As long as he's ok with the next owner being able to do whatever they want with her, who cares?
trappedspirit: MaudlinMutantMollusk: As long as he's ok with the next owner being able to do whatever they want with her, who cares?And I do mean whatever
heinrich66: Why, because everything has to go through the State, of course.

theorellior: If I was one of his neighbors I'd be a little worried about nasty decomposition fluids ending up in my well water.There is a reason society regulates burials.
brerrabbit: nekom: How do you just go ahead and bury someone wherever? How do you even get the body from the coroner/funeral home if you aren't a proper cemetery?It's not a requirement in many states. As long as a death certificate is made out, the Coroner has no choice but to release the body to the next of kin.Yes, I have legally buried friends and family buried on the property. Some folks have issues with 5000$ funerals.
Chinchillazilla: Sanitation people apparently said that's a non-issue. Besides, three years on, you're probably okay in any case.
BarkingUnicorn: FTA: "the county health department signed off on the residential burial, saying it wouldn't cause any sanitation problems."
RogermcAllen: All of the anti-HOA idiots should take note of this. If you don't have an HOA, people will start burying dead bodies all over the neighborhood./this is how HOA board members actually think//I didn't believe it until I joined my board///Regularly get emails that say things like, "If we let them *insert minor thing like keep the trash cans out past 5PM because the homeowner works late*, this place is going to turn into a trailer park"
