The tomb of the late rapper Pop Smoke was found severely damaged on Saturday morning.

Pop Smoke’s casket was interred in a mausoleum surrounded by several other caskets
An outer wall featured a headstone for the musician (born Bashar Barakah Jackson), but photos snapped by an eyewitness seem to indicate that vandals were able to remove the stone.
The top corners had been broken off and shards were scattered on the ground just below it while the remaining chunk of the stone had been leaned up against the tomb.
The ground in front of the stone was also littered with flowers, which may have been left prior to the vandalism, and what a witness said appeared to be burned marijuana joints.

It’s unclear if the intruders were able to pull out Pop Smoke’s casket, but the source who glimpsed the damage snapped a photo of a long rectangular object that was laid out against a stone wall across from the mausoleum.
The eyewitness described the item as being made of concrete and suggested it may have been a divider, either placed atop Pop Smoke’s casket to separate it from the casket above his tomb, or to the sides.
The person who discovered the damage reportedly alerted security, who were apparently unaware of the vandalism.
