More Boston war monuments vandalized
BOSTON (AP) — Boston police are investigating more cases of vandalism to military and police memorials.
Police said Tuesday memorials to veterans of several wars as well as fallen police officers in city-owned Mount Hope Cemetery in Mattapan were splashed with a dark liquid.
State police reported Monday that someone had thrown an oily liquid at a World War II memorial at Castle Island in South Boston.
Police Commissioner William Gross called the vandalism “incredibly distasteful and disheartening.”
Mayor Marty Walsh said in a statement said the vandalism “will not be tolerated in our city.”
A police spokesman says it’s too early to say whether the South Boston and Mattapan incidents are connected.
No suspects have been identified.
