The gravestone of Joy Division's Ian Curtis has reportedly been stolen from the singer's burial spot at the Macclesfield Cemetery in the U.K. Detectives say the gravestone was snatched sometime between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. "There is no CCTV in the area and there are no apparent leads as to who is responsible for the theft," a police spokesman said. The gravestone was inscribed with the words "Ian Curtis 18-5-80" and "Love Will Tear Us Apart," the title of Joy Division's biggest hit. Detectives are asking that anyone with information about the theft to contact them. Ian Curtis committed suicide in May 1980, right before the band was due to come to the U.S. for a tour.
