Junipero Serra statue decapitated at Monterey's Lower Presidio Park


MONTEREY, Calif. - Investigators are looking for the vandals who decapitated a statue of Saint Junipero Serra at Monterey’s Lower Presidio Park. This comes just weeks after vandals hit another Serra statue at the Carmel Mission.

"I was saddened, greatly saddened,” said Dennis Copeland, a historian for the City of Monterey.

Copeland said it’s a devastating blow to the city’s historic art collection. The granite sculpture has been at the park since 1891.
