Monterey statue of Junipero Serra decapitated


Police are searching for vandals that decapitated a statue of Junipero Serra at the Monterey Presidio earlier this week, becoming the second in a string of incidents targeting structures memorializing the recently canonized — and controversial — religious figure.

On Thursday, one or more vandals cut the head off the granite sculpture overlooking the Pacific Ocean, which has been in the Presidio since 1891.

The head is still missing despite an expansive sweep of the park, according to Monterey Weekly.
