Illinois deputies find missing 6-foot rooster sculpture

MOWEAQUA, Ill. (AP) — A 6-foot, 300-pound steel rooster that disappeared from a central Illinois front yard has been found, but the mystery of who nabbed the sculpture remains unsolved. Melanie and Darrell Hall of Moweaqua reported their rooster missing in June. A tip led the Christian County Sheriff’s Department to a creek five miles from the Halls’ farmhouse. They found the rooster sculpture in pieces and submerged. A welder and a body shop are getting Ruben back in shape.
