White’s 6-foot 8-inch gravestone at Cicero Cemetery was toppled Friday night or Saturday morning. In three earlier incidents, vandals used paint or uprooted flowers to desecrate the grave, police said. Ryan’s mother, Jeanne White, offered a $500 reward for information leading to the vandals’ arrests. White, a hemophiliac who contracted AIDS from blood transfusions, died last year.
