It was reported that one or more vandals came onto the property and stuck multiple forks in the lawn. They also put a “for sale” sign in the yard. Written on the sign was the phone number for the national suicide hotline along with the statement “go {expletive deleted} KYS,” which stands for kill yourself. Police say a member of the household identifies their self as a member of the LGBTQ community. It is suspected that the actions were directed towards that individual.
