SKYFOX on Georgia Guidestones after alleged explosion
The mysterious Georgia Guidestones suffered significant damage after residents reported hearing a thunderous explosion near their location.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigations told reporters that preliminary information suggests someone used an explosive device to damage the pillars.
The Elbert County Sheriff’s Office is working with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to investigate the attack on the structure.
Investigators said unidentified people detonated an explosive device around 4 a.m. Much of the structure was damaged and part was completely destroyed.
In CCTV footage released by authorities, a car is seen near the monument shortly after the explosion.
The Guiding Stones – sometimes called America’s Stonehenge, although they were erected in 1980 – consist of six slabs of granite, with an inscription carved in eight different languages on the slabs. The inscriptions contain guidelines – thus landmarks – to pursue human progress.
