SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A broken water pipe apparently caused the washout that exposed a casket at Fairmount Memorial Park in Spokane.

The small landslide Friday carried the casket about 12 feet down a hill from where it was buried 28 years ago.

KREM reports (https://bit.ly/1sZw1ES ) the cemetery is making repairs and hopes to rebury the casket in the same place.
