Harnett County Church Exposes 'Grave' Situation

Posted Updated

HARNETT COUNTY — Relatives say a Harnett County church will not let their loved ones rest in peace.

Members of Macedonia Baptist Church in Harnett County exposed two grave vaults while digging the foundation for an addition. There is construction equipment and debris on some of the gravesites.

It does not appear that the church broke any laws, but relatives of the deceased are distressed.

"It was somewhat of a shocker to see graves protruding out of the side of where the ground has been excavated," he says. "I know that we are going to have to do something. The graves are going to have to be removed."

Truelove would like his uncle's grave moved further away from the building.
