Esther King recently was at Lincoln Memorial Park in Miami when she found a small tombstone smashed open. It was a baby’s tombstone and when King looked inside, she saw the remains of a headless child.
“That is not godly,” King told the station.
The baby boy’s tomb was one of many found with its concrete cover tampered with at the cemetery, Northwest 46th Street and 31st Avenue. But the graves are so old that there are no longer name plates, making it harder to say exactly whose graves are desecrated and what state the bodies were buried in.
Ellen Johnson, the cemetery’s owner, thinks the vandals are opening the tombs and taking the bones for their Santeria rituals.
