.- Police are investigating a disturbing case of vandalism that struck the Chancery Office of the Diocese of Knoxville.
Early Sunday morning someone destroyed a statue of the Virgin Mary and Baby Jesus, by painting a red upside-down cross on the statue.
Mary's face was also painted red and her nose was smashed. In addition, Baby Jesus' head was knocked off and thrown through the front window of the diocese. Although the window was broken, no one entered the building and nothing was stolen.
No one was hurt in the incident.
