SANTA MONICA -- Police in Santa Monica are investigating the beheading of a Virgin Mary statue at a church on Easter Sunday.

The vandalism happened shortly before Easter services commenced at St. Monica Catholic Church.

A priest found the 55-year-old marble statue headless around 5:45 a.m. The head was lying on the ground just a few feet away.

The statue stands in front of the church, on the corner of Seventh Street and California Avenue. The top of the statue was covered with a white plastic bag before Easter services began.

Police say they do not have any suspects, but they are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.
