CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – The restroom facility at Perry County Community Lake has been defaced with nearly 12 vulgar and racist images, symbols, and words, and Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) officials are looking for the vandals. The incident is thought to have occurred May 21.

The markings were spray painted on the facility’s doors, interior, within the stalls, on the concrete walkway, and on the building’s exterior. Upon notification of the vandalism, MDC staff immediately covered the markings. The facility must now be completely repainted.

“Perry County Community Lake is utilized by many groups of all ages to fish, kayak and hike,” said Cpl. Christopher Doran. “The actions of a few to vandalize the restroom facilities certainly is disgusting and hopefully information will come forth to aid in the investigation.”

Anyone with information pertaining to the vandalism is asked to contact Cpl. Christopher Doran at 573-517-9056.
