Victims of alleged headstone scam ask court for justice

Posted: Updated:

A group of metro Atlanta residents who said they paid for gravestones but never received them went to court today hoping to get justice.

Joann Glass is one of at least six people who want Rev. Fred Grambrell behind bars.

Glass and the others said they paid for headstones that were never delivered, or in Glass's case, delivered late and not done correctly. Kim Chambers said her father paid nearly $1,000 for a headstone four years ago that still hasn't been delivered.

"We were trying to contact him but we couldn't get in contact with him and it has just been really frustrating. My dad is 63-years old and I believe he took advantage of my dad and my dad worked too hard for his money, so I want justice done," said Kim Chambers.

Monday afternoon, the alleged victims went to the Clayton County Courthouse hoping a judge would issue an arrest warrant.

"I would like to see a warrant for his arrest and I would like to see him in handcuffs and for him to go jail and feel the pain that I have been feeling for four years," said Chambers.

"I know my daughter is not resting because the headstone is not there and I just want to do that for her, I owe that to her. He just let us down and he needs to be picked up," said Mary Lipford.

"Thankfully, CBS Atlanta brought us together so we could just lean on each other so we can get justice," said Glass.
