Visitor: Monolith toppled by group who said 'leave no trace'
December 2, 2020
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — New clues have surfaced in the disappearance of a gleaming monolith in Utah that seemed to melt away as mysteriously as it appeared in the red-rock desert — though it's no longer the only place where a strange structure has come and gone.
A Colorado photographer told KSTU-TV that he saw four men come to the remote Utah site Friday night and push over the hollow, stainless steel object.
"Right after it had fallen over and made a loud thud, one of them said, 'This is why you don't leave trash in the desert,'" Ross Bernards told the Salt Lake City TV station.
