Because of a payment dispute, a 5-year-old boy's grave marker was repossessed by the company that made it according to ABC 6.

Grieving parents in North Carolina are demanding answers after they say their son's grave marker was repossessed by the company that made it. It's been nearly a year since Wayne and Crystal Leatherman buried their five-year-old son, Jake, after he lost a long battle with leukemia. Crystal says she was stunned when she recently went to visit her son's grave and the grave marker was gone. "He repossessed it, like it was a car," she said.

The owner of the monument company lacks remorse.

The owner of the monument company had the stone removed after he said the family didn't pay money owed."If you buy something, you've got to pay for it. No matter what it is," said J.C. Shoaf from Southeastern Monuments.

Agreed, but wa s a payment schedule set up? I have never heard of such.

He said he did it out of good will (making the gravestone) then he shouldn't be doing this now -.- people are weird

false
