Police Still Looking for Gravesite Vandals

PA Crime Stoppers is now offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of whoever vandalized the gravesite of a former governor.

Police are still trying to find out who damaged the gravesite of former Governor Raymond Shafer, and the church across the street from the cemetery in Crawford County.

On the weekend of November 3 someone spray painted grave markers in St. John’s Cemetery, and defaced the marble marker. The vandals also attempted to unearth the grave by digging to the vault.

A message on the back of the church was written in French that, when translated, reads, “Cursed for all eternity, Shafer.”

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact PA Crime Stoppers toll free at 1-800-4PA-TIPS.
