Vandals try to unearth remains
Warren County Sheriffs Department is investigating who vandalized Viola Cemetery, damaging 24 tombstones and attempting to unearth the grave of Pleasant Henderson Winton.
Vandals targeted Viola Cemetery, knocking over 24 tombstones and attempting to unearth the final resting place of a man who died 99 years ago.“I can’t comprehend how anyone could do such a thing,” said Sain Smith. “These are our loved ones in this cemetery. To do this, it’s a disrespect for the dead and a complete disregard for the living who love them.
