WEST ROXBURY, MA ((WBZ NewsRadio) -- West Roxbury residents are aghast after a number of gravestones were toppled over at Saint Joseph's Cemetery. A walker noticed first one, then another , then eight in all pushed over as if by a front -end loader but with no tool marks on the stones or tire marks in the dirt.

The cemetery is one of the oldest in New England at over 130 years old and covers over 200 acres.

Boston police are investigating and say they have an eyewitness.
