Who stole the Virgin Mary?

My co-collaborator on the blog and column, Cathy Johnston, works for Providence Centralia Hospital on the state's West side. On Ash Wednesday, someone walked away with the chapel's 2-foot ceramic Virgin Mary statue.

They tried to steal Joseph, too. And broke him while trying.

"Either they were interrupted or they didn't like the condition they created for him," Cathy told KING5 News.

"We just want our Mary back. They can bring her to the information desk at the front and we will welcome her home."


See Cathy interviewed here.


Use your imagination. Help solve this crime. Why would someone steal a Mary statue?
