Marilyn Monroe Statue Tagged

The Marilyn Monroe statue at Pioneer Court has now joined the ranks of other statues and local landmarks to have suffered the stain of graffiti. A hearty portion of the statue's right leg was tagged overnight.

Security cameras are often trained on Pioneer Court but it's unknown whether any of them have a clear view of the tagger at this time. Considering that, the statue's proximity to the NBC 5 and WGN-AM radio studios and the crowds surrounding the Monroe statue since its unveiling, we're surprised it was tagged at all.
