HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut police are investigating a grave that was dug up and remains were taken from a Jewish cemetery in Hartford.
 
Authorities say a 70-year-old grave was dug up at Agudas Achim Cemetery.
 
Officers say the incident possibly occurred on Halloween and the person or persons dug the grave with a shovel and their hands.
 
Authorities say they are at the beginning of their investigation and plan to view surveillance footage to see if a vehicle left the area.
 
WTNH-TV reports that since the family has not yet been notified, the identity of the remains in the grave will not be released.
