OLD STORY:

EVANSDALE, Iowa (KWWL) – Police are investigating an act of vandalism at the Angels Park Memorial Island in Evansdale.

The park was built in honor of local victims of violent crimes in the area.

Two lamps were damaged at the park, one completely ripped from its mount. The lamps cost around $400 a piece.

Tom Nichols, the father of one of the victims honored at the park, calls the act “unthinkable.”

“Why would somebody do that? Why do we live in a society where somebody would think of doing that?” said Nichols.

His daughter was killed by an ex-boyfriend in 2012. Nichols said it’s possible the lamps could be covered by the city’s insurance but it’s not likely.

Private donations for the park can be made to the First Security Bank in care of Angels Park or to the Community Fund for Memorial Park.
