FRANKFORT, Ind. (AP) - A project to spruce up a central Indiana courthouse by patching dozens of bullet holes found in the building's exterior has turned into a full overhaul of its weathered facade.
Maintenance crews working in the Clinton County Courthouse last fall discovered dozens of bullets holes in the Frankfort building's clock face, its metal dome and one of the four statues perched atop the 19th century structure.
Local police investigated, but no arrests were made and the origin of the bullet holes remains unknown.
As the county commissioners dealt with their insurer to get the damage repaired, the Journal & Courier reports (http://on.jconline.com/12oEoMk ) they decided to expand the scope of the job.
The courthouse is now getting a much-needed refurbishing of its exterior.
