a few months ago new board members took over the bethesda cemetery in west terre haute, and it seems matters haven't improved. we've told you before that plots were mistreated, items were stolen, and grass was overgrown. with new board members in place many we're looking for some relief. news 10's jordan kudisch joins us live this morning from the cemetery. she has more on what residents are saying about the issues. for many it seemed like a win after new leadership took over. that's because they felt their family plots were being mistreated. Now there's been some change, but much more is needed to make it right. many say the former owner, bill mclain, won’t turn over the books needed to make that change. news 10 did reach out to mclain to give his comment. as of airtime he did not respond to us. without the books being in hand and audited, board members have not been able to fully make the changes needed. grass is being cut, but not nearly to the extent that people want it to be, and previous issues like theft have resurfaced. thelma smith takes pride in the plots as her family members buried here. she says to move forward everyone has to come together to make it happen. this is a developing story. we will continue to bring any updates on what happens next as we learn more. reporting live in west terre haute, jk, news 10.
