The recreation and parks manager for the Town of Tisdale said he is disgusted that someone would vandalize the community’s cemetery.
Sometime between June 26 and June 29, nine headstones at the cemetery were either tipped over or damaged.
“These are in the older part of the cemetery like early 1900s, I don’t even know if some of the family is even around anymore,” Dwight Olson said.
Olson said the costs for the repairs fall on the families, but he adds the families should hopefully have insurance.
Tisdale RCMP has said they have no suspects at this time and they cannot figure out why someone would go out of their way to commit this act.
The cemetery is located on the outskirts of the town, at least three blocks away from any houses.
Olson said they cannot estimate the cost of the damage quite yet.
“We are starting to look up the locations now and then put a letter together notifying the families, if we can find them,” he said.
