A statue of celebrated explorer Christopher Columbus was found beheaded in a Yonkers park. Lifelong resident Pat Gamberdella said he called police when he noticed the head of the statue torn off. “It’s very upsetting that American values have sunken to the level they are today,” Gamberdella said. “It’s unfortunate because I did go up there and I did see it all smashed.” The head to the bronze-colored statue was found discarded next to a plastic bag in Columbus Memorial Park, a

mile north of the Bronx.Yonkers police are investigating the incident and they say it could have been the work of juveniles overnight. They also say there is a possibility it could be fallout from the deadly protests and counter-protests over a Confederate statue in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month. MORE
