Haverhill Church Community Heals After Nativity Scene Desecrated

HAVERHILL (CBS) -- A Haverhill parish came together in prayer Saturday after the nativity scene outside of its church was desecrated.

Police say someone stole a baby Jesus statue from the nativity scene in front of the Sacred Hearts Church on Christmas morning and left a real pig's head in its place.

Investigators believe the pig's head likely came from a farm, not a butcher's shop.

A woman who is not part of the parish donated the baby Jesus statue from her scene to the church.
