Grave diggers at the Agudas Achim cemetery in Hartford saw the displaced grave, which was dug up on Wednesday morning after checking for destroyed tombstones
Surprisingly, grave digger Tommy Valentin claimed that the grave was left with a large hole full of water and there turned out to be two dead chickens floating in it.
He said to WFSB: & We walked to the cemetery to see if the headstones were knocked down, we were on that side of the field and we see a big pile of dirt.
& # 39; We are the only ones digging here, so we walked here to discover that there is a hole here, so someone dug it out, & # 39; he added.
& # 39;This is the first time we have seen this, very shocked to see that, & Valentin added. & # 39; It's a shame. There is no respect in this world. Loved ones rest in peace and cannot even be in peace. They must suffer. & # 39;
Lieutenant Aaron Boisvert said the grave was dug by hand and looked like it had been kicked about four days ago

The grave was dug at least five feet deep with spades and two birds were left behind, according to police. The cemetery is at the intersection of Waverly Street and Tower Avenue in Hartford.
Hartford Police Lieutenant Aaron Boisvert told it Fox61: & # 39; They found what looked like a dug grave by hand, in other words it wasn't done by machines, it looked like spades, the grave seemed to be upset three or four days ago. & # 39;
The police have not made any arrests, but those responsible can be confronted with charges, including desecration and larceny.
Hartford Police Lieutenant Aaron Boisvert alleged that the police are searching CCTV images in the area to try and identify the perpetrators, who may then be confronted with larceny and accusations
The cemetery has been around since the 1930s but also has an older part
The Hartford Police Major Crimes and Crime Scene Divisions continue to investigate the incident, according to WTNH.
Leonard Holz, from the Hebrew funeral association who provides a nearby graveyard, claimed that there have been vandalism and cult-like events. But he said the graves have never been disturbed in such a way.
& # 39; This is a unique, horrific incident & # 39 ;, he told NBC Connecticut. The police are also investigating CCTV recordings in the area to see if they can identify the attacker and discover how many people were involved.
The cemetery has been around since the 1930s but also has an older part.
The Agudas Achim movement, which means unity of brothers, has an orthodox synagogue in the Hartford area.
It was founded by Romanian emigrants who first gathered nearly 130 years ago in the back room of a home in Hartford & # 39; s Front Street.
The Connecticut Anti-Defamation League said the incident & # 39; disturbing and disturbing & # 39; used to be.
The explanation was: & # 39; We do not yet know the perpetrator or motive and do not want to speculate. We are grateful for the efforts of the Hartford police and thank them for conducting a thorough investigation. & # 39;
