“I lost my son seven years ago, and this is so sad to know somebody would do this without thinking about the consequences,” Bob Dutton Sr., who found the destroyed cross dedicated to his son Robert K. Dutton, said.

Henderson Police Public Information Officer Jennifer Richmond said that a large number of tips, vehicle searches and Facebook posts helped police link the crime to Burrus.

For his part, Burris denied doing the damage and told police he had abandoned the 1979 Ford Thunderbird at a McDonald’s because it wasn’t running.

When officers found the vehicle it had pieces of the crosses and a ground stake embedded in its tires, according to News Channel 10.
