July 11, 2008
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- If you travel along Interstate 35 in the Northland, a big statue of Jesus may have caught your eye. The statue sits on Church Road at the entrance to some rental properties. Like many people, Tony Brandolino said he's been wondering what was the story with the statue. "First of all, I thought there was an accident here, and you know how sometimes they put crosses, and thought, 'That's a very nice memorial. Although extremely large,'" Brandolino told KMBC's Martin Augustine. The statue is 25 feet tall and weighs 4 tons. The owner of the statue said it was posted along the interstate to draw some attention. It's been there since May. The owner said the statue will be moved to a new location in a few weeks.
