Markleville - Town Marshal Sam Weist said he’s having trouble finding the owner of an abandoned funeral home in town.
Weist said the building, located at 122 E. Main St., has been checked out three times in recent weeks when officers noticed the door was open.
“Someone was trying to take wires and the fireplace insert out of the house,” Weist said during the March 10 council meeting. The perpetrators apparently knew no one had been living there, and the business owner vacated the building weeks prior. The building is now in foreclosure.
The council took no formal action regarding the house but told Weist to continue his investigation to determine who is responsible for the house.
