Jesus Figure Stolen from Wayside Shrine Crucifix

Country: Germany

Date of incident: January 8, 2023

Between the 19th of December and the 8th of January, the wayside shrine in Icking was vandalised. An unknown perpetrator unscrewed the Jesus figure from its cross and took it away. Now, the police have been notified and they are investigating the case.

"During the Christmas rush, we weren't on-site for a while," says Stahn. Otherwise, her family goes for a walk here in the forest between Irschenhausen and the A95 almost every Sunday. Decorating the wayside shrine has become a tradition. Pansies, palm bushes or a bouquet of self-picked flowers bring life to the shady crossing.
