HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

FOX 12’s most wanted vandalized a statue outside of a Hillsboro catholic school and police are calling a woman dressed up like Snow White, a person of interest.

This all happened sometime Halloween night at St. Matthew Catholic School in Hillsboro. The school’s St. Francis statue was broken and decapitated, in two places. 

When administrators checked their surveillance cameras to see if they captured the culprit, they say they were stunned to find a woman dressed up like Snow White staring up at the camera.  

“She was kind of grinning, you know smiling like she’s about to do something,” said Principal Joanne Smith. “My staff has dubbed her creepy Snow White.”

In the surveillance video, the woman dressed up like Snow White is the only one who shows her face to the camera, but she is with a group of people.  

While the actual vandalism cannot be seen from the camera angle, the school says the group are the only ones caught on camera Halloween night anywhere near the St. Francis statue. 

Administrators say they’ve never had anything like this happen at the school.  They add that it was quite upsetting to find their beloved statue, that’s been on the property for a decade, decapitated.

“The people who did this, they obviously don’t understand the statue and what it means to us. For them it was a practical joke, but for our children, it just makes them feel sad,” said Smith.

Administrators say they plan to fix the statue and secure it to their fountain so something like this can’t happen again. 

At this point investigators are simply calling Snow White a person of interest.  They want to talk to her, or anyone that was part of the group that night. 

If you recognize anyone in the surveillance images, call police right away.
