No one caring for dead inside private Ohio mausoleum

Posted: Updated:

CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Trustees in an Ohio township are trying to resolve the fate of a private mausoleum slowly deteriorating as no one cares for the remains inside.

The century-old building in Nimishillen Township near Canton was built on the grounds of the Union Cemetery Association, but the association says it's not part of the cemetery.

Township trustees can't use public dollars to maintain the mausoleum, but would have to use tax dollars to knock it down, with little hope of getting the money back.

Township Trustee Todd Bosley tells The Repository (http://bit.ly/2e0EqY2 ) for a story Sunday that the situation is a legal mess trustees are trying to sort out.

The interior is visible through holes in rusted doors, while part of the roof has collapsed into the structure.
