All the family vaults in Woodland are empty. In the 1970s, the city of Cleveland failed to properly police the cemetery. The homeless broke into the vaults, threw the bones outside, and lived inside the now empty shelters. When the authorities finally cleaned house, they took all the scattered remains and buried them in the ground around the vaults before sealing the doorways for good.
