KIDS CONFESS: Cemetery Headstones Toppled


Police in eastern Iowa say kids have confessed to knocking over headstones at a local cemetery.

About 60 headstones at a cemetery in Central City were toppled over or torn out earlier this month. Many of the headstones are engraved with death dates from the mid-1800s.

Deputies say three children, ages six and seven, confessed to the vandalism.

The county sheriff’s office said the cemetery’s board of trustees is working with the parents of the children, and no charges will be filed

The vandalism caused an estimated $3,000 in damage.
