dishonorable burial rituals:

I don't know if I dreamed this or read it in a fantasy or if it's actually real. So I'll ask kind of a backwards question:

Is there a culture that deals with the dishonored/criminal/disliked dead in this fashion: burning them and spreading their ashes by wind, so that essentially they are forced to wander the earth forever, unable to find peace?

Or did I imagine this culture existed?
