Workers for the Englewood DPW uncovered a headstone between the railroad tracks and the parking lot of the Englewood PD. Tests revealed no body buried anywhere nearby. The Police Dept is located on the site of a former building supply company called Prentice Company. The headstone belongs to James Prentice, so it’s assumed that he was buried on the property as a memorial, rather then burying him in a proper graveyard. Experts believe the body decomposed over the last 120 years and that nothing of remains is left. Local authorities have not yet decided what to do with the headstone.
