MUSCATINE, Iowa (AP) - A mausoleum at the Greenwood Cemetery in Muscatine has again been vandalized.

The Muscatine Journal reports (https://bit.ly/299D13e ) that sometime over the weekend, vandals wrote graffiti in three spots on the Harry W. Huttig mausoleum. It was the second time in three months that vandals have hit the cemetery and the second time in the last 20 years that the mausoleum was a target.

Officials say graffiti was scrawled above the door and on the corner of the mausoleum and on a flower pot that’s part of the remembrance for Harry Huttig, who died in 1935, and his wife, Kathryn, who died in 1948.

On April 3, 50 headstones were topped at Greenwood Cemetery. A 17-year-old boy has been charged with criminal mischief in that case.
