Two sculptures stolen from Cleveland funeral home

CLEVELAND -- So far, police have no leads on whomever stole two sculptures -- valued at a total of $7,332 -- from their display at the House of Wills funeral home.

The sculptures went missing overnight Thursday. The two large sculptures were created by local artist Killian Skarr.

The House of Wills is located on East 55th Street and is an historic building which is considered one of the "most haunted places in Ohio."

Thieves forced open a door and, apparently, carried off the pieces, which weigh in excess of 250 pounds.

The artist is offering a "cash reward" for any information leading to their recovery.

The two stolen sculptures were to be part of an upcoming show featuring the artist's uniquely disquieting pieces.

When asked for comment, he replied that the "show will go on" and claims that the sculptures are cursed.

"I have pity for those poor unwitting souls. These sculptures will only bring doom down upon them..." said Skarr.

The artist kindly requests that any information regarding the theft or current whereabouts of the sculptures be sent to his email address:
