Reader Chris Billingsley noted that there’s been some recent filming activity going on a the Decatur Cemetery.

He said, “Lots of movie equipment in Decatur Cemetery. I came across a new monument in the black section of the old cemetery and moved closer for a better look. Someone yelled,  ‘You can’t go near that!’  I took a pic and left. An impressive monument. Fake but impressive.”
