Anyone With Information Should Call Crime Stoppers At 800-244-TIPS

SOUTH FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A Long Island park dedicated to a 9/11 victim was vandalized for a third time over the weekend.

Police discovered the damage at the Kathy Mazza Memorial Park on Elm Avenue in South Farmingdale on Saturday.

Flowers had been pulled up from the ground, branches were ripped off trees and brickwork was knocked over, police said.

The park is named after a Kathy Mazza, a Port Authority police captain who was last seen helping people out of the North Tower of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

Her mother, Rose, is angry and hurt by the vandalism.

“It’s in memory of a 9/11 hero who died risking her own life to save hundreds of people,” Rose Mazza told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall. “You lose a daughter, you never get over it. I cry, I think about the way she died.”

Detectives are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
