EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – Egg Harbor Township Police are trying to locate the proper owner of a tombstone and are asking for the public’s help in sharing the image.

The tombstone was discovered on Sept. 30, 2009 in the Delilah Terrace Mobile Park. The name on the tombstone is nine-year-old Brandy Bradley, who is listed as being born on Jan. 9, 1970 and dying Aug. 2, 1979.  At the time of the recovery, officers’ checks of the local cemeteries failed to discover where the tombstone came from or any family of the deceased.

Recently further attempts were made to locate where this tombstone may have come from but nothing was located. The Egg Harbor Township Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance to get this item returned to where it belongs and give the family some peace.

The department is asking for the community to share this message on social media, so it may cast as large a net as possible to get this property returned.            

 The department routinely uses social media and other outreach efforts to keep the public informed and to receive tips from the community. The officers also work to stay in contact with the community in their efforts to return personal items recovered in investigations.

 For instance, Detective Sgt. Michael Hughes this week was able to return a 1974 Oakcrest High School Class ring to its owner, who now lives in Florida. It had been in the department’s evidence storage since it was found in 1986.
