Orlando Police say that Principal Kelly Maldonado called police today to tell them that the mural had been vandalized – "It has been completely painted over by an unknown suspect," the police report says. "Complainant Maldonado could not place a value on the cost to replace the mural as it cannot be repaired."
No other information was available from the police, but an Instagram user going by the handle @noahdesigns has this to say:
The Roberto Clemente mural done by @nicertatscru at Azalea Park organized by my brother Earl and city officials including the mayor was recently defaced. Pro job no less (not graffiti) although all suspects deny involvement. Apparently a sponsor recently didn't get his way and took it out on the mural. This mural was the shining light of that community and children of all ages had a hero to look up to. Please support this community. If you're aware of the news, let them know this should not be taken lightly. [Someone] should be held accountable. #orlando#robertoclemente#clemente#vandalism#tatscru#nicer#bigearl#otown#azaleapark
