    FEMA, La. outsource Katrina body count to firm implicated in body-dumping scandals

    Miriam Raftery

    The Federal Emergency Management Agency has hired Kenyon International to set up a mobile morgue for handling bodies in Baton Rouge, Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina, RAW STORY has learned.

    Kenyon is a subsidiary of Service Corporation International (SCI), a scandal-ridden Texas-based company operated by a friend of the Bush family. Recently, SCI subsidiaries have been implicated in illegally discarding and desecrating corpses.

    Louisiana governor Katherine Blanco subsequently inked a contract with the firm after talks between FEMA and the firm broke down. Kenyon's original deal was secured by the Department of Homeland Security.

    Here's a new chapter in an old scandal involving a Bush contributor and longtime family friend, Robert Waltrip. This time it's the desecration of dead bodies, and George W. Bush is directly linked to this scandal (as is former FEMA director Joe Allbaugh, GW's Chief of Staff while governor of Texas). According to Fox News, Waltrip's company, a cemetery company called Service Corporation International (also known as Dignity Memorial) was "recycling" graves, removing the bodies that were there originally and throwing them in the woods to use the space to house new customers at two Jewish cemeteries in Florida.

    Bush's connection to the story is that he was subpoenaed in 1999 but refused to testify in a lawsuit by an ousted Texas state employee as to what his involvement was in halting an investigation into SCI's embalming practices, among other things.

    Thanks for posting Poncho, was aware of the RAW STORY article. It's obvious there will not be an accurate body count just like for US soldiers in the Iraqi war.

    Read article saying Halliburton received a 110 million (?) contract to extract gold from victims teeth; reminds me of the Holocaust.

    That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard.

    Isn't it against BB rules to post absurdities ? I think Mr. Botwinik is quite correct. This garbage does no good to those of us trying to engage in honest debate.

    And for a guy who's always calling other's actions sin & such, you sure do link to an offensive website. I saw the F-word there, in abundance.

    Shame on you.

    PN,

    The link to the source of this story goes to The Onion. A satirical weekly newspaper. Here's todays headline story at The Onion.

    Not to worry, I got burned once, real bad, by the onion. I looked like a complete fool. Happens to a lot of us, I guess.

    After I realized what an Idiot I was, I made a full apology, and recieved forgiveness from most of the people I offended. A couple of folks made sure I never forgot it, but the overwhelming majority never mentioned it again.

    And I'm sure that would happen now, P-Nut. Offer an apology, and we'll all move on....

    My apology, this is political satire as was the Halliburnton contract to pry gold fillings from Katrina victims, found on: www.policticalhumor.about.com/

    Moderators may delete related post.

    Aside from the Onion article, what do you think about the stories about the company at the other sources?

    About the same as I think about the Clinton Body Count, the Vince Foster suicide papers, and other such trash.

    I checked links provided by Poncho and agree with their contents.

    The manager of the company who allegedly desecrated Jewish graves easily could of been murdered, common practice is to eliminate someone who knows too much by making it look like a suicide or an accident. Vince Foster and JFK Jr. were murdered.

    I have been to numerous funerals at Waltrip Funeral Home here in town. My grandfather was there, and so have many other family and friends who have gone.

    I have always been impressed by their level of respect for the family and the dead and for their professional demeanor.

    I do not believe this about them.

    Pretend I'm someone else. Would you offer proof then ? Or do you wish to lose any chance of ever having anything you say here taken seriously, just because you don't like me ?

    Vince Foster was not murdered by the Clintons. J.F.K. jr died in an aviation accident.

    I didn't see anything that would lead me to believe this was fact.
