Compulsive Grave Robbing

Police in Lincoln, Nebraska, are trying to return these stolen grave markers to their proper locations. They turned up last summer in the storage unit of the late Clarence Horner.

"This guy apparently had some kind of compulsion to steal them and collect them," said Lincoln Police Chief Tom Casady.

A couple of years ago, Lincoln police got a call that someone was lurking around an east Lincoln cemetery and it turned out to be Horner, Casady said.

"He had some mental issues. Officers knew when they contacted him but we had no idea he was stealing headstones," Casady said. [Link]
