Statue of former president loses head in Ohio

Mon May 18, 7:10 am ET

HIRAM, Ohio Someone has beheaded a statue of President James Garfield that was installed last week at an Ohio college.

Hiram College spokesman Shawn Brown says the vandalism was discovered Friday morning, just a day after the sandstone statue was dedicated on the campus in Hiram, 30 miles southeast of Cleveland.

Brown says the college is hoping the head will be recovered so the 95-year-old statue can be restored, but police have no leads in their investigation.

In the mid-1800s, Ohio native Garfield was a student and later the principal at the school that later became Hiram College. He was elected the nation's 20th president in 1880.

The statue was acquired for Hiram by a college trustee who found it recently on an eastern Ohio farm.

I'm guessing Odie or Nermal are the prime suspects...

He'll never be the head of a major corporation

Or the head of state.

Sandstone? That's nice. Are they sure it just didn't erode away during a storm?

Maybe they can make a replacement head out of toilet paper and balsa wood.

I bet that Charles Guiteau's great-great-grandson is a prime suspect.

I'm thinking this is just a huge misunderstanding. Some college student told his girlfriend when she asked what he wanted for his birthday "some head"

The rest is history.

It's a shame he wasn't more headstrong.

He may have mailed it to Abu Dabi.
