ST. PAUL, Minn., June 23 (UPI) -- Police said they are trying to find the rightful location of a headstone discovered near some caves in St. Paul, Minn.

Officer John Keating, a St. Paul police spokesman, said the headstone with the inscription reading, "Marie Olsen, 1879-1932," was discovered Sunday in the 300 block of South Wabasha Street and police have been unable to match the information on the headstone to state birth or death records, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Thursday.

"We don't know where it came from or how it got to where it was found," Keating said. "We certainly want to make sure it gets back to its rightful place."
