Cemetery Vandalism Investigation in Vicksburg

Paper and Product Packaging Industry

Police are trying to identify the person(s) responsible for damaging headstones at Vicksburg cemetery.

Authorities with the Vicksburg Police Department say the vandalism was reported on August 12th, just three days after a fire destroyed an old paper mill nearby

That fire was later determined to be arson, but investigators say there is no indication at this point in the investigation that the two incidents are related.

Even though the vandalism at the cemetery was reported on Sunday, there is no clear indication of when the damage was done.

Anyone with information on the arson investigation, or the cemetery vandalism, is asked to call the Vicksburg Police Department or Silent Observer.
