Parents fed up with gravesite thefts, offer reward
Stewart and Evelena Osborne are upset about thefts at their son Anthonyâ€™s grave at Newman Cemetery in Hi Hat, so now theyâ€™re doing something about it.
They say thieves have taken flowers, solar lights and other tributes they have left at the gravesite. Most recently, the couple placed a University of Kentucky-themed wreath at the cemetery Feb. 12. Days later, it was gone.
The Osbornes have filed a report with the Floyd County Sheriffâ€™s Office, and now they are offering a $50 reward for information that results in the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for stealing the wreath. Anyone with information about the theft can call (606) 226-0326 or (606) 452-2473.
