CORINTH and BOONEVILLE — The Secretary of State signed an order continuing a cease and desist order issued against Forrest Memorial Park of Corinth and Oaklawn Memorial Park of Booneville.
Both cemeteries may no longer sell any pre-need goods and services to the public.
“With over $100,000 missing from their perpetual care trust accounts, our agency believes these two cemeteries may no longer adequately serve the public,” says Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann.
Forrest Memorial Park and Oaklawn Memorial Park are owned and operated by Wayne Hight of Corinth. Hight Funeral Home is located on property, which adjoins Forrest Memorial Park.
The funeral home is not currently subject to the cease and desist order.
This cease and desist order is for future pre-need sales only for vaults, markers and grave opening/closing services paid in either a lump sum or monthly installments.
