Place
Perry Park

Harvard Road and Monterey Way, Lawrence

Lawrence police were called Wednesday afternoon to Dad Perry Park, where investigators examined what appeared to be a grave site.

About 7:45 p.m., Lawrence police Sgt. Dave Hubbel said police found what looked like some sort of shrine and a cross. However, no body was discovered.

Detectives will continue to investigate the scene to determine whether a crime occurred, but that doesn't appear to be the case, officers said.

Police initially responded to a call about 4:15 p.m. from a resident who found what appeared to be consistent with a small grave in a wooded portion of the park.

The park is at the southeast corner of Monterey Way and Harvard Road.

My guess: a Santa Maria ceremony blessing the Jayhawks.

Wow, I actually read the initial post as saying Santeria...what kind of moment was that?!

KU_cynic, LMAO!!! There IS a grave that COULD be located in East Lawrence's newly named HoopsDaddy James Naismith Park & Final Resting Place Of Final Four Prayers, Ceremonies & Misc March Madness Mojo Making...All Santerians, please note that future blessings may best be held on the more candle & eclectic friendly south side of 15th Street one block west of Harper...
