We Accidentally Dug Into Someone's Grave!

Has he gotten over it yet? Bet he still has the odd nightmare about it, doesn't he?

Unfortunately he died (the nephew) a few years later. I didnt even find out about it until long afterwards as I don't live in that area. And yeah, I imagine it was really horrible for him to have to smell that and have it on him and his clothes for that long ride home. I know he said he still smelled it long afterwards even after changing clothes and taking showers etc.

Some years ago, my husband was present when the badly decomposed body of a lost resident was found and yes he still says it was the worst stench he had ever smell. You think it would smell like any rotting flesh of any animal but he said not so, worse. I remember when he came and told me about it and for weeks later he still had that scent in his head, like he was still smelling it.

Ahh, that is sad that he died so young, sorry about that.

All my life I always wanted to be somebody. Now I see that I should have been more specific...

I'm surprised you filled the grave in... that only leaves things open for others to stumble upon the unmarked remains. Generally speaking, you're supposed to notify someone-- either the caretaker, authorities or both-- if you stumble on an unmarked grave or human remains.

What they'd probably do in a family cemetery like that is move the old grave and erect an unmarked headstone if they couldn't discern whose bones those were.

As for the clay... yucky. You'd think with soil like that you'd have mausoleums instead of ground burials. Swamps and moist soil that doesn't drain are the primary reason cemeteries in Louisiana are above-ground. Nothing like graves that float or don't drain proper.

Yeah! That is a good point, I never even thought about it at the time. Also, I didnt really make that decision. The family did that. There were only two of us digging but there was a lot more people there.

Didn't coffins float during Karina in New Orleans?

You aren't to blame here, you were too young at the time.

Garsh Ma'am Tongue Grin I was actually around 33 years old - but I was just a step-son, his "real" family were there and they were the ones who were calling the shots.

I can't even imagine discovering something like that. I've heard many stories around here of people finding graves in their backyards when digging the earth for a garden, or doing home renovations, and many years ago a restaurant here in town found an entire family cemetery when they were redoing the parking lot. But that just had to have been horrendous. Thank you for sharing such an interesting story.

I was thinking about this awhile ago and I realized something that I had never thought of until now. I have experienced sleep paralysis one time in my life and it was right after this incident. I was living in an apartment at the time and only lived there around 3 months while I was waiting to move into a house. It was while I was living there that we buried my step-father and when I had the experience with sleep paralysis.
