avatar Suspect Named in Vandalism Case at Eight Western National Parks
October 29, 2014 05:53PM
Public asked to be patient as investigation continues

WASHINGTON – A 21-year-old New York State woman, Casey Nocket, has been identified as the primary suspect in recent vandalism cases that affect eight national parks in the western United States.

National Park Service investigators have confirmed that images were painted on rocks and boulders in Yosemite National Park, Death Valley National Park, and Joshua Tree National Park, all in California; Rocky Mountain National Park and Colorado National Monument, both in Colorado; Crater Lake National Park, in Oregon; Zion National Park and Canyonlands National Park, both in Utah.

Investigators continue to collect evidence of the crimes, conduct interviews, and are consulting with the U.S. Attorney's Office about potential charges. We ask the public to exercise patience and allow due process to take its course as the investigation moves forward.

The image in Rocky Mountain National Park was reported to the park and removed in late September before similar images were found in the other national parks. Ice and snow now cover the image at Crater Lake National Park, and it may not be accessible for assessment and clean up until next summer. An image in Yosemite National Park was removed by an unknown person or persons.

If people visiting these parks come upon these images, they should contact the nearest park ranger with information about the image location. Visitors should not attempt to remove the images.

The National Park Service was contacted on October 20 about this vandalism case. The investigation began immediately.

Actuall it's http://www.nps.gov/news/release.htm?id=1651. But since it is public domain as a work of a federal agency, why not just post the content?

Because one time I posted a content and got chastised for it so I was playing it safe. The second link I posted was for the correct story and I have that site booked marked so I can read releases so that was the one that I ended up posting and it does work because I just tried it above.

The awful thing about this is the number of morons who will see her in the news and emulate what she did.

Cosmopolitan Magazine posted an article titled, "Female Graffiti Artist Is the New Most-Hated Person on Instagram
And Possibly Your New Hero."

It ends with the statement, "...wherever she is, she's inspiring a lot of girls to break some rules." [emphasis added]

http://www.cosmopolitan.com/sex-love/news/a32482/female-graffiti-artist-is-new-most-hated-person-on-instagram/

I don't see how the feds could possibly come down too hard on this "artist".

Perhaps someone should decorate her car and other possessions with his own idea of interesting art. And do it multiple times....
