Prince William Police are investigating extensive damage done to the athletic facilities at Battlefield High School in Haymarket, which was discovered, Tuesday, May 29.

“There were obscene images and profanity spray painted on multiple surfaces causing extensive and costly damages,” said police spokesperson Officer Nathan Probus. “There were dead animal parts scattered throughout the premises as well.”

Probus said the dead animals are likely roadkill.

The stadium complex, which includes a field used for football, soccer lacrosse and track were vandalized as well as the visitors’ bleachers.

“We have not received a final estimate of the costs of the damages,” said Diana Gulotta, Communications Director for PWCS. “That is still being determined.”

The school put together a $500 reward, the booster club added $1,000, and a parent has been raising money. The total reward is now $2,800 said Gulotta.
