Statue stolen from Stephentown 'party home' has been returned


STEPHENTOWN, N.Y. - A commemorative statue of an eagle allegedly stolen from the home of former NFL player Brian Holloway has been returned to him.

The Rensselaer County Sheriff's Office says the eagle has landed. Holloway tells NEWS10 the housekeep at his vacant Stephentown farmhouse secured the statue and shipped it to him in Florida.

The statue - which was part of a memorial for his stillborn grandson - was allegedly stolen from his home after police say nearly 300 teens held a 'wild party' at the former New England Patriots player's house on August 31st.

Holloway found out about the break-in and party through tweets his son was receiving, then alerted police. Investigators with the Sheriff's Office responded and documented the damage finding walls spray painted, windows broken, floors scuffed by beer kegs and soaked with urine. Police say much of what happened at the party was shared in pictures and posts on social media.

Holloway has posted a list of more than 100 people he says were at the party on his website, he says in order to separate the innocent from the guilty.

Police are still conducting interviews of hundreds of students believed to be at the party. No arrests have been made at this time.
