Statue stolen from Wichita State in 1987 recovered in Mo.
A valuable statue stolen in 1987 from Wichita State University has been recovered in southwestern Missouri, and one man is under arrest.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the bronze bust of American poet Robert Frost by famed sculptor Walker Hancock is currently valued at about $25,000. News reports from 1987 indicate the statue was one of three stolen early that year from an outdoor collection on the campus of the Kansas school.
