HARRODSBURG, Ind. (AP) — Southern Indiana residents with loved ones buried in a cemetery where vandals toppled headstones are collecting reward money seeking tips on who might have committed the crime.
More than 20 headstones were topped overnight Saturday at Clover Hill Cemetery in the Monroe County community of Harrodsburg just south of Bloomington.
A stonecutter is re-setting the damaged headstones, but relatives of some of the people buried there are shaken by the crime.
Harrodsburg resident Gena Moore tells The Herald-Times (http://bit.ly/15iOz5H ) she can't believe some people have so little regard for the dead they would deface a cemetery.
Rita Barrow's husband was buried at the cemetery in 2000 with military honors. She says the vandalism didn't just damage headstones but also the feelings of the families with loved ones buried there.
