Chicago's Ronald McDonald got decapitated

Written by
Nick Kotecki

Someone lopped the head off the Ronald McDonald statue in River North Monday night. 

The statue sat on a bench outside the Museum of Broadcast Communications, located at 360 N State St, but has now been removed for repairs (i.e. getting glued Ronald's head back on).

The burger mascot's clandestinely severed top was retrieved by employees at the nearby Tortoise Club during what made for, surely, a not-so-normal workday.

Suspects have not yet been identified and a motive has not been established. Our bets are on a) very drunk male, early 20s, with sense of humor or b) a person who really hates Mickey D's. According to CBS Chicago, there is no surveillance footage available. 

The head hunter remains on the loose.
