Help sought in solving Minn. vet grave desecration


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A reward of $10,000 is being offered for tips leading to whoever desecrated a World War II veteran's grave at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis.
   Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek on Tuesday asked for the public's help in finding suspects or evidence.
   The grave was desecrated on July 12. Investigators believe that more than one suspect was involved.
   Stanek provided several photos of a folding knife found at the scene. The knife has a 3-inch blade and a black handle. The name "Wally" is crudely inscribed on one side of the handle.
   A maintenance worker found the grave disturbed, with ground and soil removed. World War II veteran Edward Redhead was buried in the grave in 1971.
