Vegas Monolith Mystery Solved: Disappeared for Safety’s Sake

By TheNevadaGlobeStaff, June 22, 2024 11:17 am

The mysterious Las Vegas monolith saga has finally come to an end with local authorities removing the structure early Friday morning.

According to an update from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD), the 77-inch tall object was taken down due to concerns for public safety and the environment. Its current location is undisclosed, with officials still deciding how to dispose of or store it permanently.

While the investigation into the monolith’s origin remains open (no one knows who put it there), the LVMPD is not actively pursuing the case.

The discovery of the monolith over the weekend sparked national and international intrigue. Made from reflective sheet metal and secured to the ground with rebar and concrete, it mirrored similar structures that appeared around the world in recent years.

Following its removal, the LVMPD issued a reminder to hikers and visitors to stay on designated trails. Leaving objects behind not only disrupts the environment but also poses a potential danger.

The department emphasized the vastness of the Desert National Wildlife Refuge, encompassing over 1.6 million acres of rugged terrain and sensitive wildlife habitat. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy the refuge responsibly and minimize their environmental impact.

For those seeking to explore the area, be prepared for challenging off-road driving conditions, limited cell service, and scarce access to water.
