Acting on a tip in February 2002, investigators discovered a ghastly scene of bodies buried, stacked and strewn about the Tri-State Crematory in the Noble community. The case made international news and inspired a film.
Marsh pleaded guilty to 787 counts of theft, abuse of a corpse, burial service fraud and making false statements. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison in 2004. Marsh walked out of the Central State Prison in Bibb County on Wednesday, accompanied by his attorney, according to Channel 2 Action News.
