Over Presidents Day weekend, the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and WWII memorial were all defaced by a vandal, scrawling cryptic conspiracy theories in marker on the side.
Police believe it was one person, not a group attack.
“In the earliest hours of Sunday morning, around 1:00 or 2:00 am, a park police officer on patrol here at the Lincoln memorial discovered some graffiti,” Sergeant Anna Rose, with the U.S. Park Police, said at a Tuesday morning press conference.
The messages themselves were bizarre. All of the sites had the same few things written on them. “Jackie shot JFK” was on most of the sites. “9/11 /01, misty pilots flew planes into WTC 1, 2, P, F,” was another phrase repeatedly written.
The Daily Caller has more:
The bizarre messages alluded to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy and the Sept. 11 terror attacks. The same message seemed to be copied at each location, an additional reason authorities believe it’s probably one man.
“Jackie shot JFK,” was a recurring message at the sites where the graffiti was still visible. “9/11 /01, misty pilots flew planes into WTC 1, 2, P, F,” another message read.
The bizarre messages also refer to leukemia, cancer and HIV, stating that “Blood test is a lie” and “Get a second opinion.”
Rose asked the public for assistance with the investigation, asking people to call 202-610-7500 to report any information that could help solve the case.
