We are often advised to forgive and forget just so we could free our soul from all vindictiveness but a 69 year old, Paul E. Donovan Jr certainly do not share in this, well maybe the forgetting part but not the forgiving bit.
After what seems like forever this ageing man from Phoenixville, Pennsylvania has repeatedly vandalised the grave of the man he claims stole $300 from him over 50 years ago.
The tarnishing of the headstone began in the spring of 2014 and involved the use of spray paint, though he did once cover the marker with a dark, tar-like substance. This kept going on for 2 years then the authorities decided to set up hidden cameras to catch the man behind this craziness.
According to the official police complaint, after being caught, Donovan said he was willing to,
“pay back any restitution minus the $300 that was stolen from him by the dead man 56 years ago.”
On Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to the offences in court. He was ordered to pay the family and placed on a 2-year probation.
