Children reportedly confess to vandalizing Iowa cemetery
Three children, ages six and seven years old, have reportedly confessed to knocking over about 60 headstones in an Iowa cemetery.
The vandalism was reportedly at the historic Oak Hill Cemetery, north of Central City in Linn County on April 12, 2014. Death dates on some of the headstones there are from the mid 1800s.
The damage was estimated at $3,000 according to KCRG-TV.
The cemetery’s board of trustees was working with the parents of the alleged vandals to get repairs made, and the children who confessed to the vandalism will not face charges, KCRG reported.
