Tombstone Of Hillary Clinton’s Father Toppled Possibly By Vandals


Police are looking into a report that the headstone of Hillary Clinton’s parents may have been hit by vandals, just one day after she announced her Presidential bid.












The toppled headstone was found by caretakers on Monday afternoon.

“It was just laying down just right like that, boom.”

WNEP reports:

Paul McGloin pointed to an indent in the ground, left behind from the impact of the Rodham family headstone falling over.

McGloin says he was driving by the Washburn Street Cemetery Monday afternoon when he noticed the headstone wasn’t on its base.

“I pass here five, six times a day because I live two blocks from here and when I looked I couldn’t believe it, to see that it was tipped over,” said McGloin.

McGloin has taken care of the grave since meeting the Clintons during Rodham`s funeral in 1993. He feels it`s too much of a coincidence with Hillary launching her presidential bid over the weekend. McGloin thinks this was intentional.

“And all of a sudden the headstone is tipped over, two days later. And like I said, as long as I`ve been coming here, the headstone has been pretty secured around the base of it,” said McGloin.

Police Chief Carl Graziano suspects the toppling may have been caused by vandals.

“I’m not sure how else it would have fallen over,” he said.

Neil Regan, the funeral director who organized Rodham`s funeral, says it`s possible that it`s weather, but he doubts that’s what happened.

“The more I thought about it, there were no serious winds or weather events yesterday and Paul McGloin told me he had driven by here eight o`clock yesterday morning and the stone was in place,” said Regan.
