GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A burial worker is fired for dancing in a grave site at Grand Junction Memorial Gardens. Contract employee Christopher Redd says he was lip syncing to enter a radio contest to win Rock Jam tickets. He says his performance was on top of an empty vault that was to be filled with a coffin the next day. Redd says his immediate boss gave him permission, but he was fired anyway. The cemetery denies that Redd was ever given 'the okay' to use the grave for his music video. The incident is now under investigation by the Mesa County Sheriff's Office.
