Designer chosen for Georgia crematory memorial

Posted: Updated:

NOBLE, Ga. (AP) - Officials in Walker County have decided to use the Tennessee-Georgia Memorial Park cemetery to design a memorial for people whose bodies were found at the Tri-State Crematory.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports (http://bit.ly/zIrYtX) that plans for the memorial have been in the works for the past 10 years.

The memorial will commemorate the 334 bodies found discarded at the Noble, Ga., crematory in 2002. The discovery of the bodies attracted international attention and changed the way crematories are regulated.

Walker County Sole Commissioner Bebe Heiskell reviewed bids this week from three north Georgia companies that had proposed designs for a monument. The monument will be built using $45,000 allocated by the Georgia Legislature when the bodies were discovered.
