Headstone damaged at cemetery



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A headstone was damaged recently at the Longstreet Baptist Church Cemetery.

The complainant said he believed it happened overnight and could have been caused from a log truck in the area clearing trees west of the cemetery.

The deputy did not observe obvious signs of a vehicle leaving the roadway and striking the headstone. He did see a small chip on the backside of the monument indicating an object likely struck the rear of the monument causing a portion of it to fall over.

The complainant said the headstone belonged to his elderly aunt and her deceased husband. He said he isn’t sure how much it cost originally or how much it would cost for repairs.
