The smell at a small church in Clinton County is making a big stink, particularly upsetting the pastor's wife.
It turns out that the stench is coming from an above-ground casket at the cemetery next to the Central Grove Baptist Church in Albany, Kentucky.
Larry Jones, pastor of the church, said, "My wife came out the other morning and she just about threw up."
The tomb was installed in June and the body inside was never embalmed.
"We began to smell, about two weeks later, a horrendous odor," Jones explained, "and the odor was very much like a dead animal only really worse. We've basically been prisoners of our home."
Since the smell surfaced, Jones has been trying to get rid of it. There is no law against above-ground burials. The crypts are vented and the odor escapes all day long.
A recommendation has been made to the cemetery's board to be more strict about entombment regulations.
