Vehicle damages grave markers at Leila UMC

MOULTRIE — Someone drove a vehicle through the cemetery of Leila United Methodist Church Saturday night, damaging several grave markers.

Patsy Hembree of Omega called the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office at 9:30 a.m. Sunday to report the damage.

A deputy arrived at the church, located at 3079 Ellenton-Omega Road, and saw tire tracks that he said appeared to have been made by a large pickup. Multiple grave markers were damaged, he said, and it appeared the vehicle had gotten stuck and cut deep ruts over one of the markers as it worked its way out.

The sheriff’s office asks if anyone has any information about the destruction to please call the investigations division at 616-7430.

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
