George Rogers Clark National Historical Park

National Park News

On May 25th, a visitor reported discovering damage to a statue of Francis Vigo that is located behind the George Rogers Clark Memorial near the Wabash River. The nose of the statue had been completely broken off and the lip was badly chipped, resulting in a repair estimate of approximately $10,000. The Vincennes Police Department investigated and received information which implicated Christopher Brannick, a 19-year-old local resident. A search warrant was served at Brannick’s residence on June 28th and culminated in the recovery of the broken nose. Brannick was questioned and is accused of breaking the nose with a metal instrument, removing it from the park, and maintaining it in his possession.  Brannick was taken to the Knox County Jail, where he was charged with criminal mischief and theft.  He is being held on $6,500 bond pending appearance in Knox Superior Court.
