The aftermath of a string of vandalism at Green Lawn Cemetery had become utterly overwhelming.

Between September 2015 and January 2017, Green Lawn had seen more than a dozen incidents of vandalism, resulting in an estimated $1.25 million in total damages. The cemetery has never before experienced vandalism to this extent.

Randy Rogers drives up to the Field family mausoleum, within Columbus' Green Lawn Cemetery. Its columns are covered by police tape, and the glass in one door is splintered.

But the worst of the damage is on the other side.
