Saturday afternoon, a passionate protest happened outside of Park Lawn Cemetery in Evansville, Indiana.

A handful of protesters could be seen holding signs asking for better conditions in the cemetery.

According to some of those present, graves have been destroyed, and headstones have been dug up and removed.

They say this has been a problem for some time and hope change is near.

"My son's headstone was vandalized August the 10th of last year, and they replaced it but it's not even where he's buried at," said Tammy Miles. 

44News reached out to Park Lawn Cemetery Officials about the protest but they have not responded.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
