NATIONAL CEMETERY-VETERAN REMOVAL
House votes to disinter veteran buried at national cemetery despite shooting spree

The House has passed legislation that instructs the Veterans Affairs Department to unearth the remains of an Army veteran buried with military honors after police said he killed an Indianapolis woman and injured three others before taking his own life.
That's what happened in the case of Michael LeShawn Anderson. He was buried last year in Michigan's Fort Custer National Cemetery after police said he fatally shot Alicia Dawn Koehl.
The VA said it found out about the circumstances surrounding Anderson's death only after he had been buried and it needed authorization from Congress to remedy the mistake.
