Va. museum missing an eyeball

By Washington Post editors

Someone stole the Science Museum of Virginia's eyeball, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

Early Saturday morning, just 12 hours after museum officials placed a covering depicting an eyeball over its large kugel sculpture, someone ripped the fabric away. The eyeball decoration was being used to promote the museum's exhibit "Goose Bumps! The Science of Fear."

The covering is valued at $4,000.

Virginia Capitol Police say that two people were seen running away from the sculpture carrying and folding the fabric eye as they fled.
