Pembroke, Ky. Cemetary Headstones Vandalized

Headstones at a cemetery in Pembroke were found to be vandalized, when a employee of the Hopkinsville Monument Company was visiting Rosedale Cemetery and made the discovery.

There were a total of 40 headstones found to be vandalized at the cemetary.

According to cemetery caretaker Jason Hancock, the vandalism happened sometime between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning.

Hancock said some of the damage was on older stones which dated back to the 1800s. He isn't sure the older ones will be able to be repaired.

Christian County Sheriff's Office has launched an investigation into the incident.
