Tennessee authorities arrested a man accused of manipulating a photograph of a deceased officer’s gravesite and posting it online. 

Joshua Andrew Garton, 28, was charged with a count of harassment after being accused of making a photo “that depicted individuals desecrating the grave” of late Dickson County Sheriff’s Office’s Sgt. Daniel Baker and publishing it on social media, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a news release on Friday.

“Agents subsequently visited Baker’s gravesite this morning and determined the photograph was digitally manufactured,” the bureau said in the news release. 

The Tennessean reported Sgt. Baker killed on the job in 2018.

According to the news release, Garton  is housed at Dickson County Jail and bond is set at $76,000.

Lisa Baker, the widow of deceased Sgt. Baker, called the photo a “disrespectful photoshopped image” to Nashville’s WKRN-TV

 “I have lived through the worst and continue to just push forward. There is not much that the people of this world can do to surprise me. All I can do is pray for the lost soul responsible and the safety of our law enforcement,” Baker told the news station.
