I spoke with Chief Battle of the Warrenton Town Police this afternoon. I asked what we can do.
At this time his detectives and those of Fauquier County are working to gather evidence and follow any leads as a result.
1. They ask that we not visit the site until their work is done.
2. Second I asked him about the repair of the stones, Does the Town have insurance. He indicated that the Town Council will need to hold a meeting to discuss this and how they will restore the tombstone.
He said we should hold off on any repair fund until the Town Council and Public works have had time to react.
3. Finally a few folks have offered to give towards a rearward fund for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the vandals. Hoping to encourage anyone with information to come forward. To this point he asked that we hold off on the offering, that this might be a last resort if all leads go cold.
I will be in contact with Chief Battle as information is available I will let you know. Let's let them do their job to bring these villains to justice.
