Mildura Council ‘saddened and shocked’ by Ombudsman report

MILDURA councillor Min Poole said she was "really saddened and shocked" by the findings of a Victorian Ombudsman investigation into the conduct of a former council employee at the Mildura Cemetery Trust.

The Ombudsman's report, tabled in parliament on Wednesday, alleged that former team leader of the trust Darren Bock illegally exhumed four bodies, sold memorial chairs for personal gain and received cash payments on the side from funeral directors to lift grave lids, enabling interment of additional people in a single grave.
