3 DC monuments vandalized over the weekend
Over the weekend, and most likely on Saturday, three popular monuments in Washington, D.C. were vandalized, reports WRC.
Using a black marker, someone wrote on the Washington Monument, the World War II Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial.
The Washington Post notes that "some of the words in the messages were hard to decipher. One message said, 'Jackie shot JFK.' Another mentioned the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center."
Authorities say none of the messages appear to be political or racial and note they are in the process of identifying a suspect.
To that end, they will be reviewing surveillance footage and are asking witnesses to come forward.
The effort to rid the monuments of the vandalism is already underway.
According to WJLA, the cleanup procedure is expected to take a couple of weeks.
