Man Dies in Graveyard Accident
Macomb police say they do not suspect foul play in the death of a man who fell from a tombstone.
Police were called to St Paul Catholic Cemetery Wednesday night, February 22, by friends of 28-year old Michael Farrell of Davenport, IA.
Witnesses told police Farrell climbed on a large tombstone. He then fell ten feet and landed on his back.
He was pronounced dead a short time later at McDonough District Hospital.
