Police investigate headstones missing from cemeterySeptember 6, 2019
By The Associated Press
WEST LAFAYETTE — Northwestern Indiana police are investigating after two headstones were apparently removed from a rural cemetery.
Sand Ridge Cemetery's caretaker reported the missing headstones Tuesday, telling Tippecanoe County Sheriff's deputies the stones had been removed from their concrete bases.
The Journal & Courier reports that the caretaker told deputies he last mowed the graveyard just southwest of West Lafayette about three weeks ago and didn't recall anything out of place at that time.
Both of the missing headstones were engraved with the same family name.
Deputies say the cemetery's trustee would be contacting that family to alert them that their deceased relatives' headstones are missing.
