RICHARDSON, TX-The past few years have been hard for Monica Valdez and her family.

"There is like, no words," she said. Monica lost her  five-month-old son on November 15, 2013 and buried him at Restland Funeral Home.

On January 30, her visit to her son's grave site was disturbing when she only found a large hole.

The plot was dug up, a vault was open and the casket was missing.

"I wanna know where he is, who did it, why did they pick up his grave,” she asked.

Valdez says her son's grave has been tampered with in the past but the funeral home has told her the baby is still buried.

She says her plea for answers has come up short. Her attorney, Ramez Shamieh, says Restland Funeral  Home has yet to give them any answers.

"If what they're saying is true, that the baby was buried there and they have proof of that, then show us," he said.

The funeral home posted a video to its Facebook page saying "…we are most disappointed by the accusations brought forth by this family we have confirmed the accusations are simply not true."

NewsFix reached out to Restland's attorney, but have yet to hear back.

For now, Valdez and her family would like some answers to fill their empty space.
