Ex-cemetery manager accused of desecrating graves dies

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A former caretaker of a Connecticut cemetery who was arrested in 2018 after police said they found bones strewn about and new graves placed over old ones has died. Hearst Connecticut Media reports the chief medical examiner's office said Thursday that Dale LaPrade, of Stratford, died and the cause was cardiovascular disease. The media group's report did not say when LaPrade died. Her criminal cases remained pending and she had pleaded not guilty. In 2018, authorities said they found about 130 graves disturbed at Park Cemetery in Bridgeport, including those of Civil War veterans. Gravestones and remains had been removed to make way for the newly dead.
