A South Bend woman says her daughter has been laid to rest in the wrong place.

Rebecca Bogart died of complications from diabetes in January of 2006.

Her mother, Madeline, in shock from her daughter's death, did not notice the mix-up as it happened.

She says she contacted cemetery officials one week after burying her daughter, but nothing has been done.

Madeline bought the plot 20 years ago.

Madeline said, "Just planning so whenever I was going to go I was going to be there, I wasn’t thinking of her passing before me."

Chapel Hill officials checked their records.

They say Rebecca is buried in the plot her mother purchased for her.

The say Madeline may be confused because a tornado took out more than 300 trees at the cemetery back in 2001.
