'No money to die': Burying the poor and unclaimed - Muncie Star Press

Monday, June 19, 2017

Fewer people have insurance or the money to pay for their own or a loved one's burial. More people are dying from drug overdoses or while estranged from their families.Center Township Trustee Kay Walker said her office has dealt with about a dozen of what used to be called "pauper" burials so far this year. Hand in hand with that number is the number of people who die with no next of kin, or at least none willing to take responsibility."Unclaimed bodies are becoming a bigger problem for us," Delaware County Coroner Scott Hahn said.David Cox, president of Meeks Mortuary, which handles many of the indigent burials, said, "We probably average three or four trustee services a month."It's a depressed area," Cox said. "People have no money to live and they have no money to die."Buried at taxpayer expenseThere's a section of Beech Grove Cemetery, the city-owned final resting place for thousands of people, where people are buried at taxpayer expense by the trustee's office. Some of the graves have markers and tombstones like those you would see in every section of the historic cemetery. Some are unmarked and some have been commemorated over the years by homemade wooden crosses with the hand-lettered names of the deceased.Buy PhotoGravesites at Beech Grove Cemetery Tuesday afternoon.  (Photo: Jordan Kartholl / The Star Press)The graves for the indigent are located not far from the grand tombstones and marble crypts of some of the city's founding families. But they are miles apart when measured in the cost of their final disposition. A typical modern funeral can cost $5,000 or more, Walker said, but the indigent burials cost about $2,000, including $1,000 for preparation of remains, coffin and service, $750 for the cemetery and around $250 for a headstone.Most of the burials for the indigent in recent decades have been done through the Center Township trustee's office. When someone dies without insurance or funds to cover burial costs and their family members can't or won'...
