Police Investigating After Headstones Were Toppled at Torrington Cemetery

Torrington police are investigating after around 10 headstones were toppled at Center Cemetery. 

Police said they have not identified any suspects and they are hoping that someone who saw something will come forward. 

Cemetery officials said they are a non-profit organization with no funds to repair damage, but a volunteer is working on it.

Douglas Lawton is the only volunteer available to help with the cleanup and said each headstone takes anywhere from an hour or a day to repair. 

This is the second time something like this has happened in Torrington recently. Around 30 headstones were pushed over in Old St. Francis Cemetery on Willow Street last week.
