A family is shocked to find a stranger buried in their plot

"I literally almost dropped my phone, I was in tears, it's nothing easy to deal with," said Waad Charara.

Once, let alone twice, what are the odds. What happened to Waad Charara and her family is more like a story line from a major motion picture. Last week, on the 19th anniversary of his wife's death, her dad learned someone had been buried next to her in his plot again.

"It's been a couple days, I still get upset when I try to eat ... it hurts," said Abdul Charara.

We first introduced you to the Charara's back in September of 2011 and that's when the family filed a lawsuit against United Memorial Gardens in Plymouth because someone had been placed in their family plot. It had basically been double sold. Records showed the family purchased three more spots in 1997 and had them paid off in 2000. The case has since been settled and the remains removed, but now a repeat four years later.

"It's really devastating. I feel like we've been dragged through the dirt twice, not just my family, but the other family. It's nothing to take easy. It's just really devastating," said Waad Charara.     

We did reach out to the cemetery and they tell me they are looking into the issue. The family does plan to file yet another lawsuit if something is not done to remedy the situation so they can all rest in peace together as planned.
