Kansas City police are investigating how a tombstone came to be abandoned in a parking lot at 4126 Troost Avenue.

Workers were cleaning brush and trash from the lot behind an apartment building this afternoon when they found the gray marble tombstone for Lottie Linch, who was born in 1890 and died in 1966. It also had the word “mother” on it.

Police checked genealogical websites and determined Linch’s maiden name was Stone and that her daughter and husband had since died.
