It was reported Saturday that the Flat Rock Church and cemetery located north of Arkansas Highway 56 had been vandalized. Deputy Steve Davidson found the headstones, the inside and outside of the church had been spray painted with graffiti along with what is believed to be various satanic symbols. It appears no one has been buried in the cemetery since October of 2016. Anyone having information as to who possibly committed this horrendous act is asked to call the Izard County Sheriff’s Department at 870-368-4203.
