    Police: Vandal Trapped By Tombstone
    40 Headstones Damaged In Cemetery

    February 22, 2006

    ROODHOUSE, Ill. -- Police in the central Illinois town of Roodhouse said a teen became pinned under a tombstone after tipping it over during a vandalism spree at a local cemetery.

    Authorities said it took four firefighters to lift a 600-pound gravestone off the 16-year-old boy's leg early Tuesday after he helped knock over that headstone and dozens others.

    The boy is recovering from undisclosed injuries at a hospital.

    Police Chief Steve Speeks said the boy will be questioned about the alleged vandalism once he's released.

    Speeks said about 40 headstones were damaged. Police suspect multiple offenders were involved.

    The funeral home director estimated the damage at about $10,000

    Roodhouse is about 60 miles southwest of Springfield.
