Indigents buried in mass grave

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe presided over the burial of 1,440 indigents who were buried in a mass grave Wednesday at L.A. County Cemetery.Many of the people buried Wednesday were homeless or poor, with no known family members. "This holiday season many of us are reminded of how fortunate we are to be surrounded by our loved ones. Sadly, not everyone shares this blessing," Knabe said. "Regardless of what their status in life was, each one of their lives mattered." A moment of silence was held at Tuesday's County Board of Supervisors meeting in honor of those buried.
