Tipped Tombstones

Two gravestones lay tipped over on Sept. 8 inside Dunn Cemetery near Beck Chapel. The vandalism was reported Sept. 4 to the IU Police Department and the Indiana Memorial Union, said Thom Simmons, associate executive director for the IMU. At least four grave markers were knocked over; some of them broke into pieces. The cemetery is owned by the Dunn family, but the IU Physical Plant takes care of it, Simmons said. Moses Dunn sold 10 acres to the IU Board of Trustees in 1895, with the agreement that the cemetery there would stay in the family."I was very dissapointed to see it happen," said Simmons, who said has been with the IMU for 21 years and can't remember anything like this happening in the cemetery before.
