PostSubject: Eric buried at Crown Hill Cemetary in Jeffco?   Sat Jul 13, 2013 5:05 pm

There has been a rumor floating around that someone found out that he was buried at this cemetery in an unmarked grave .Does anyone think there's any truth to this?

The person who started this rumor said his ashes were buried there . This person claims to have found this information

Not really. I could believe it re:Dylan, but not with Eric. Didn't the Harrises move away from Littleton? It'd seem much more logical to me that they'd have their son near them somehow. I don't think they left anything in Littleton outside of bad memories and could-have-beens. Plus, wouldn't someone in the community have figured it out a while ago and created an uproar over it if it were true?

I don't know? None of us has any inside information or knows the family so we can think about it and guess .Maybe they buried his ashes there years later after things died down ?Maybe they didn't.Maybe his ashes are scattered in the winds.I hope that if he is buried there his grave will be left alone .He deserves to rest in peace .

I highly doubt he was buried in the sense of a casket. He was most likely cremated and his parents probably have his ashes as do Dylan's parents.

Somebody on this board or the old one said that Eric's ashes were scattered in Platsburg?

I don't have a source but I am almost 100% sure that Eric was cremated

I read a few articles with Eric's parents claiming that they did bury him, but in a unmarked grave in an unnamed cemetery, to prevent destruction. But for all i know those articles gave me incorrect information.

It seems like I have an very vague memory of this too but since Eric's parents have always been so private I kinda doubt the accuracy of those early reports.

As far as if this report is true I'd say its doubtful but not impossible.I hope its not though because if it were every discovered to be buried anywhere I am sure some would desecrate the grave which is a horrid thing to do to a grave site, any grave site.

It's sad that his family and those of us who care have no grave site to visit but under the tragic circumstances its best.Besides as someone once said his memorial is the wind and the rain.I really liked that and that's how I try to think of it.

Everything is possible, but we will possibly never know for sure if Eric has a gravesite at all, and if so, where it is.

I have many thoughts on it (way too interested in death, body disposal and gravesites... maybe I need therapy).

First of all, if Eric's family decided to not speak with the public, we should respect their decision. After all, they lost a son, they have to cope with this terrible burden - that their son did not only committed suicide, but was actually a mass murderer... I cannot fathom how it feels, as I am not a parent. But I am sure that this is incredibly hard for them. No wonder that they wish that people leave them alone. For many, the whole tragedy is just a morbid sensation.

But I think it is a shame that there are good chances to a gravesite being vandalized. Very bad that - as [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] pointed - under such tragic circumstances, it is the best that Eric's (and Dylan's) resting place is unknown.

I mean: no matter who the deceased was, no matter what they did in their lifetime - everyone deserves to rest in peace.
At least, because a dead person cannot defend himself/herself, and so it is really not a brave thing to vandalize the grave of someone who is not in the position to strike back.

(Off topic, but I became really upset by reading that after Myra Hindley's death, there were many funeral homes that denied to do the service for her. One of the funeral directors openly stated "if people get to know that Hindley was cremated in our incinerator, no-one will order a funeral service at us any more!"
This says so much about prejudices. confused Sorry for the off.)

His memorial being the wind and the rain... yes, we might as well think so, but this might appeal to other deceased, too.
I assume these websites that give good and justiceful information are the best memorials.

I wonder how many of you would visit Eric's grave if we knew where it is?
I would gladly visit everyone who lost their lives 20/4. That would mean 15 bunches of flowers to be bought. (And much travelling.) Is it a sentimental thing?

It's sentimental but it's perfect. and as long as you're doing it respectfully and for an honest reason then, why not?

There was a discussion on their funeral services in the "highlights of the 11k" thread under the Documents section on here a while back. I think the verdict was most documents suggested that both boys were cremated. There was a bit of controversy as to whether Eric actually had any services at all based on this reference in the 11k, but several of us read elsewhere that he did have services but they were private.  As far as what their families did with their ashes, that's still up for speculation

I think what the person meant by saying that Eric's memorial is in the wind and rain said that because unlike the victims he wasn't able to have a grave site with a nice tombstone like the victims were able to,but I guess like you pointed out, you could think that about anyone who has passed away.


I would definitely visit Eric's grave if he had one and would like to pay my respects at all the graves at least once.

This confuses me because I always thought it wasn't Zack who went to the funeral but his parents instead?

I cannot believe that Eric's parents didn't have some kind of service for him.Someone would have to show me proof they didn't before I think I'd believe that.

I highly doubt that. Eric was cremated (just like Dyan) and ashes very rarely get ground burials. I'd bet everything I have his remains are either in an urn in possesion of the Harris family, or his ashes were spread somewhere in secret. Even if they had buried him its unlikely they'd have done it in JeffCo. With all the hate Littleton felt post-Columbine someone would have spilled the secret eventually.

To each their own, but I'm not sure why people are so concerned about the graves of people who committed atrocious acts and sent others to early graves themselves. Not in a position to strike back? Neither were the victims of their crimes. I personally would care a hell of a lot more about a killer's violent actions towards innocent people when they were alive rather than people vandalizing a killer's grave when they're dead, but then again I don't respect murderers. Would I vandalize their graves if I had the opportunity? No, but I couldn't give a shit about Dylan's, Eric's and Myra's graves or lack of thereof and I'm sure they didn't, either. Of course I feel sympathy for their families and close friends, but that's it.

It's that a cemetery is a sacred, peaceful place.It's a place of respect and rest,where people go to grieve.To vandalize a grave violates that in a truly fundamental way.Plus all it does is hurt any friends or family a killer or whoever has left, assuming that anyone who knew them is still alive at the time this occurs .
I think everyone has a right to a decent burial and to have their final resting place left alone but as there are grave desecration's , obviously not everyone agrees with me.

I've always read that Eric and Dylan both got cremated and their ashes are with family- I hope so, not for the sake of the safety of two murderers or anything like that but it's so they are close and always with family. Especially Eric since I tend to believe that he didn't get a service at all, it's such a Harris thing to do, but in quiet Eric's ashes are with them. But idk about a grave site or anything like that...

Yes, it is true that the victims were not in the position to strike back. I understand why you don't respect murderers (you see, the fact that I usually try to understand their motivations does not mean that I try to find excuses for them), but the fact that you would not vandalize their graves is great.
And, I think the whole question has much to do with sympathy for the friends/relatives - as they would be those who visit the gravesites.

i'm not sure what excuse i would ever tell my parents for going all the way over there to visit the 13 graves and eric and dylan's if they had one. i'm not even sure what i would feel or what i would do, but i still would have liked to know what happened with their remains.

A school should be a place for learning and friendship. To go on a murderous rampage in one violates that in a truly fundamental way.

Fuck Eric and Dylan's graves/ ashes.
