Terre Haute, Indiana

The claim: Federal Correctional Institution, Satellite prison camp and death facility. Equipped with crematoria reported to have a capacity of 3,000 people a day. FEMA designated facility located here.

What it really is: Yes, this facility is the home to Federal Death Row (in fact Timothy McVeigh was executed here) what is not true is that there being a crematoria here.

Everyone who is executed has to have an autopsy on them, and are taken off site to have it done. Funeral arrangements are also done by the family of the executed, not the state, and if a body was to be cremated, it would be done at a private facility, not on site, thus there would be no need for a crematoria.

Also, for a crematoria to handle that many bodies per day, it would have to be pretty darn big and very obvious, and from what I have seen from satellite photos using Google maps, nothing at the facility looks like a crematoria.
