Authorities in northwest Iowa are trying to find out where some cemetery headstone pieces originated. The Clay County Sheriff’s Office received a vandalism report out of Dickens Wednesday afternoon. Deputies at the scene found 14 chunks that were broken off of headstones in a ditch east of town. The catch is– the local cemetery wasn’t missing any headstones. Sheriff Randy Krukow says someone apparently transported the pieces from another cemetery. The two cemeteries in Spencer have been checked and neither had been damaged. Krukow says one of the pieces appears to have the name “Norgaard” inscribed on it. The sheriff’s office is asking for the public’s help in solving this act of criminal mischief. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Clay County Sheriff at 712-262-3221.
