570WSYR Reporting: Troopers say they are looking for a man they think vandalized headstones in the Village of Mexico.
State Police say they believe 21-year-old Kody Barr was involved in desecrating the Village of Mexico Cemetery in March. Police arrested a 16-year-old last month for the vandalism.
Anyone with information on Kody Barr is asked to call the New York State Police at (315) 298-1473.
Here's Kody's mugshot:
Here's the damage that was done to the cemetery...
PAT'S TAKE: Just classless right? The end of the world? No. But at 21 you should no better. I figured it was kid who did this with his dumb friends. Instead it's a 21 year old, and while that's still young you know better.
I wonder if the families know and if they care?
I will say that these don't all look well preserved. That doesn't mean they should be vandalized... duh. But families often forget about these grave sites and let them degrade, which is sad... but also understandable. A couple generations go by and you didn't know these people at all.
Still, I'd be sentimental. You wouldn't be here without them.
