ABC News' Yunji de Nies and Sunlen Miller report:

After initially saying that Michelle Obama's father, Fraser Robinson, was buried at Burr Oak Cemetery, the first lady's Communications Director now says he is not.

In a statement Camille Johnston writes, "There has been some confusion that has been cleared up. Fraser Robinson III was buried at Lincoln Cemetery NOT Burr Oak. Mrs. Obama’s father is Fraser Robinson III and he is NOT buried at Burr Oak. I do not know where her grandfather was buried, but I do not believe he is at Burr Oak either."

Workers at the cemetery are accused of digging up the dead, discarding bodies, and in some cases reselling burial plots.
