Forsyth County cemetery vandalized

Posted: Updated:

Forsyth County authorities are investigating after a cemetery was vandalized in July.

Donnie Munda went by the cemetery on July 17 and noticed that the markers on several graves were toppled down.

“You never know what could make a person decide to do something like this, and it makes you said,” said Munda.

The cemetery is tucked away off Ronald Reagan Boulevard and dates back to the 1800's.

Munda tells FOX 5's Cory McGinnis the people buried are among the first 300 families who lived in Forsyth County, including a constable as well as a sheriff.

Twenty graves mark Munda's family members and nearly all of their headstones are damaged.

The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office says they are investigating the incident as vandalism.

Munda is trying to find a way to replace the headstones. He tells FOX 5 the Bell Research Center in Cumming is offering a reward. Anyone with information should ask for Cliff Robert or contact Detective Norton with Forsyth County.
