Bardstown Cemetery Confederate monument vandalized

 Vandals desecrated a Confederate marker in Bardstown Cemetery late last week by what appears to be splashing or throwing red paint on the century-old statue.

The vandalism was reported to Bardstown Police Friday, and investigators believe it was vandalized sometime late Thursday night or early that morning, said Assistant Police Chief Kevin Thompson.

Thompson said detectives were searching for video surveillance that might lead to a suspect.
