She is buried in Tappan Reformed Church Cemetery in Tappan, New York. WABC TV reportedand added that she died five years ago.

Murphy and his sister initially thought the poop bag might have been left by a careless dog walker or a dog owner, News 12 said – but after a second bag was found, they were convinced they had been left there on purpose.

“We contacted the police,” Murphy told News 12. “They came and took a report and said, ‘If you find anyone else, let us know.’ So we found someone else a few weeks later.”

Murphy and his family then got permission from the cemetery to install cameras, News 12 said.

In fact, camera timestamps showed a man arriving at the grave around 6:15 a.m. for four consecutive days last week – while the man’s wife waited in a car, News 12 reported.

Then on Day 5, Murphy placed his camera on a nearby headstone, shot video and confirmed that the man in question is his late mother’s ex-husband, adding to News 12 that she split from him over four decades ago divorced.

“There hasn’t been contact since 1976,” Murphy told News 12. “I know they were married a year; they had a bad break.”

“I could see him up there … and I could hear the urine hitting the floor,” Murphy added in an emotional portion of the station’s interview.

“I promised my wife and kids the day before, I promised my sisters because I was angry that I wouldn’t hurt the man,” Murphy added to News 12. “But we wanted to do it right; we thought we’d get justice that way.”

made arrest

Orangetown police arrested a 68-year-old man for allegedly urinating on the grave, WABC reported.

The family identified the suspect as Dean Eichler, WABC said, adding that he left Tortello when she became pregnant and claimed the child was not his. But the station said DNA tests showed “a very different result,” and Eichler’s biological daughter was shocked by her father’s actions.

Tortello remarried, WABC noted.

A neighbor told WABC the suspect lives in Bergenfield, New Jersey, and works in the deli department of a major grocery chain in Tenafly.

It’s unclear to Tortello’s family how long the grave desecration has been going on, but Murphy told News 12 they want more serious charges than just public urination and are hoping for laws that make it a criminal offense to desecrate a grave in this way.
