  • Swansea, IL (KSDK) - A sculpture that was stolen from a local college campus has been recovered in a lake.

    Authorities say a kid was fishing in St. Clair Lake when he saw something in the water and asked adults to help him pull it out.

    When they pulled the sculpture out of the water they recognized it as the sculpture stolen from Lindenwood University's Belleville campus in January called "The Glass Tower."

    Police came and picked up the sculpture.

    The artist of the sculpture, Brother Mel Meyer, will donate it back to the Belleville campus.

    In March Brother Meyer created a replacement piece for the school.

    The school will keep the replacement statue, and the recovered statue will go on the quad after it is professionally cleaned.
