LOS ANGELES (AP) - The unclaimed remains of nearly 1,500 people have been buried in a mass grave in Los Angeles.

County Supervisor Don Knabe says the cremated remains were generally those of individuals who were poor or homeless, and not claimed by family or friends.

The burial occurred Wednesday morning at the Los Angeles County Crematory and Cemetery in Boyle Heights.

The county generally holds onto unclaimed remains for about two years before burial.
