Workers prepare to bury Francisco Carmona Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, as graves await the indigent at Meadow View Cemetery in Louisville, Ky., the city's current Potter's Field. Counties across Kentucky, like much of the country, are seeing more cases of unclaimed bodies and families who can't afford to bury or cremate a loved one.
