After a Civil War statue in front of the Colorado Capitol building was vandalized and torn down, Denver police are now investigating who might be responsible.

According to The Denver Channel and State Patrol, the statue was toppled overnight, but vandalized possibly before that. There is reportedly surveillance video in this area, so police are hopeful that they'll be able to spot whoever took down the statue on-camera.
