More than 100 headstones toppled at Mass. church

| July 6, 2010

LYNN, Mass. — Authorities say more than 100 headstones in a Catholic church cemetery in Massachusetts were knocked over during the weekend.

Lynn police Lt. Peter Holey says the stones were all pushed or kicked down, likely on Sunday night.

The Rev. Michael Ferrero of St. Mary's Parish in Lynn says the vandalism is "sick" and he can't comprehend the effort to cause that much destruction.

A crew from the Boston Archdiocese will reset the headstones this week.

Lynn police are appealing to the public for tips leading to suspects.
