Reward Offered In Veteran's Grave Desecration Case
7-31-12 (Minneapolis, MN) -- A 10-thousand-dollar reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in the desecration of a gravesite at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. A maintenance worker discovered the grave of World War Two veteran Edward Redhead had been disturbed on July 12th. Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek says he believes more than one suspect was involved in the crime. A folding knife with a three-inch blade, black handle and the name "Wally" inscribed in a crude manner was found at the scene. Authorities are asking for the public to come forward with information about the knife or grave desecration. Redhead was buried at Fort Snelling in 1971.
