SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: DID I DO THAT?
A tipped over and split-in-half Carrera marble statue from France is a real “whodunnit” in the 4200 block of Lorraine Avenue. Last seen in an upright position around 8 a.m. Nov. 27, the homeowner told police at 2:50 p.m. Nov. 29 she believed the statue was “forcibly knocked over” because it was too heavy to have been an accident. While the homeowner had no idea of how much the statue cost, she said it was “really expensive.” The officer’s research assumed it was worth anywhere between $2,500 and $30,000.
