Today Vox woke up to the sound of the clock tower bells ringing on this spooky, rainy morning. Something felt amiss, and a quick glance out the window revealed the great gaping travesty on the face of the Healy clock tower. Some time during the night the hands of Healy Hall’s clock tower went missing. Rumors are circulating that the hands were stolen by mischievous seniors on the prowl in the night.
According to Wikipedia, the clock hands are traditionally stolen by students and mailed to the Vatican stamped “return to sender”. The last time the clock hands were stolen was in 2005.
The grand mystery begins, investigative journalism pants are on, and updates to come. Vox suggests you keep your watches on; it’s going to be a long day.
Update (6:30 PM): Clock tower missing second set of hands on back side as well.
