Historical Foundation to Meet About Fixing Doughboy Statue

Lynchburg, VA - The Doughboy Statue is still missing a piece of his bayonet.

The Lynchburg Historical Foundation is meeting with city officials and the sculptor on January 10 to discuss repairing the statue.

In October, an Amherst County woman allegedly told police she accidentally damaged the monument and threw the bayonet into the James River.

State police divers recovered it several weeks later.

Jessica McCrickard is charged with damaging property and petit larceny. Her trial is scheduled for January 22.
