Man visiting mother’s grave ‘panicked’ after noticing cemetery’s mistake

A Milwaukee man says he was shocked to see a stranger buried next to his mother in the cemetery plot reserved for his father, who is still alive.

"I just can't make sense of this," R.C. Smith told WITI. "I approached the mound and immediately I knew that somebody was in my dad's space there."

"My dad is still alive! Ninety years old, much alive and well," Smith said.

Smith called the manager for answers and told them:
