Police arrest CT woman for pretending to be cemetery manager, profiting from burial plot sales


BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — A Connecticut woman is facing charges Tuesday after police say she had been pretending to be a cemetery manager and had been profiting from burial plot sales and services.

This happened at the Park City Cemetery in Bridgeport.

Dale Laprade, 65, is accused of using over $60,000 in cemetery accounts for personal expenses. Detectives are assisting people with loved ones who are buried at Park City.

Laprade was arrested back in 2018 and charged with felony interference with a cemetery. A judge ordered her to be removed as manager back then.
