Desecrated is a pretty harsh word. I’d say vandalized. But any way you put it the grave of Charles Roberts, the gunman who killed 5 girls in the Amish school shooting, has been defiled…
Someone trashed the freshly dug grave of the man who shot 10 Amish girls last week, killing five of them before he reloaded his pistol and killed himself.
Tuesday morning “was the first incident where the grave site was damaged,” said state police Trooper David Fedorshak. “The caretaker’s wife was walking through the cemetery about 7 a.m. when she noticed the grave was kicked about. Flowers and a stuffed animal stomped on and kicked around there, the flowers ripped out and thrown around.”
I get the feeling it won’t be the last time either.
In other news from Dutch Pennsylvania Roberts is not a suspect in any other crimes.
The schoolhouse where the shooting took place is scheduled for demolition tomorrow.
Area hospitals that treated the victims of the shooting are waiving the costs to treat them.
