Chillicothe OH- A report was filed with the Chillicothe Police Department in regards to the vandalism of a civil war soldier monument in a local cemetery.
The Grandview Cemetery located on Brookside Rd is home to the monument. According to the report, the soldier had an arm removed, a rifle and a sword that was on a bronze plaque at the base.
