Ronnie Van Zant Burial Plot Revealed

When vandals disturbed the burial site of Lynyrd Skynyrd's Ronnie Van Zant in 2000, his family elected to relocate his remains to an undisclosed site.  A Jacksonville, FL television station's follow-up to a post Craigslist by someone seeking to sell plots adjacent to what the lister maintains is the current final resting place of the late vocalist seems to confirm the claim.  A small headstone clearly identifies the plot in Riverside Memorial Park on the Westside of Jacksonville as being where his remains now rest. Assuming that the marker has been in place for at least a decade, it is remarkable that it has taken this long for the site to have been discovered. 
Van Zant, Skynyrd guitarist Steve Gaines and background vocalist Cassie Gaines lost their lives in the October, 1977 crash of the Lynyrd Skynyrd tour plane.
