Grisly Crimes Committed in Cemeteries


Penny Snodgrass

Although Penny’s crime wasn’t particularly gruesome, it is unusual and rather disturbing. Penny Snodgrass from West Virginia, stole the headstones of multiple decorated war veterans and used them to decorate her yard and burn pit. Neighbours of Snodgrass claim that she is mentally ill and had previously set fire to her own home. For the stealing of headstones, she was charged with grand larceny.

Serial Killer Stephen Port

Stephen Port was charged with the murder of four young men in 2016. He found his prey on dating websites, earning him the nickname ‘the Grindr killer’. After stalking and charming them he would slip them drugs until they were unconscious. He would then proceed to rape and murder the men and dump their bodies in a nearby graveyard in East London. He would dispose of their phones and plant fake suicide notes to attempt to cover his tracks. He is currently serving a life sentence. It is widely believed that there may be more victims that have not yet been tied to the terrible killer.
