The alleged headstone of Leroy Wright, the youngest of the "Scottsboro Boys," leans heavily toward a semi-sunken grave at Pleasant Garden Cemetery in Chattanooga.

David Young, a resident of the Ridgeside community whose home backs onto the cemetery property, has been fighting the underbrush and rampant foliage growth for three decades.
