The anonymous corpse ceremony

A ceremony is performed for the burial of an unclaimed body. Indigents who die within Maricopa County, and whose bodies are unclaimed, are buried here by women in the Sheriff Joe Arpaio female chain gang.

A moment of mostly silence

One of the few times I saw the chain gang inmates quiet.

The chain gang inmate's silence is broken

F-16 jets roar overhead, temporarily drowning out the ceremony.
