Janice Ali came to the cemetery Sunday to visit the grave of her son, Anthony. She lost Anthony, a married father of four daughters, at age 36. Her son and some other grave sites are no longer intact.

We could see tire tracks leading up to the graves, a vehicle has been driven over some of the markers and headstones. Janice says recently new graves were dug out in the same area. She believes it's not vandals but possibly careless workers who caused the problem.

Wana Gozalez lost her son, Eddie Romanski, at age 21. Tire tracks also go over a stone at Eddie's grave. The stone is crushed and cracked in several places.

The families could not find anyone working at the cemetery. They say they'll inquire this week to try and learn more about what happened and who's responsible for the damage.
