MARSHALL, Mo. - It’s been a few days since one of the city’s parks has been without its signature statue. The city said someone stole it over the weekend.

The Sister of Liberty statue welcomed you to Indian Foothills Park. The statue has been there since 1951, when the local boy scouts bought her as a part of a celebration for the organization that year.

The problem is, no one has seen her since late Saturday night, and that is not sitting well with the community.

It was probably bronze, which means that they are in for a rude awakening whenthey try to cash in.

I have seen over the past 20 years drug related crime worm its way into rural areas (actually in some cases it goes back to the 1970's, my grandparents had trouble with a neighbor) It died down in the 1980's but its back and spreading havoc on areas where the farm implosion created an economic void.

Jeff City is no help, a few counties like Franklin seem to get it and are fighting, but there is a lot of apathy out there.

From the article (bold emphasis mine):

Parks and Recreation Department director Jeff Stubblefield said he thinks someone snatched the statue because itís made out of sheet copper.
