Why the Late Actor Michael Clarke Duncan -- Who Earned an Academy Award Nomination for 'The Green Mile' -- Is in an Unmarked Tomb TMZ
More than a year after the death of Academy Award-nominated actor Michael Clarke Duncan, who starred in the Fox procedural "The Finder" and the acclaimed feature film "The Green Mile," Duncan's body is in an unmarked cemetery tomb because of a fight involving his family and his former fiancee, Omarosa Manigault, reports TMZ.com.
The disagreement is over a bronze plaque that was planned for his vault. Even though the plaque has been paid for, differing stories are circulating about why it hasn’t yet been ordered and mounted.
Manigault “was blocked by his family because they wanted to handle it,” according to one version of the story, TMZ reports. But other accounts say that the opposite is true, according to the story. Manigault reportedly “identified herself as MCD's ‘wife’ on the cemetery paperwork and promised to order the inscription ... but never did.”
The piece adds: “And neither side wants to talk to the other to work it out.”
