According to a story in Maryland Community News, the terrifying Brookeville angel has "deteriorated beyond repair" and will possibly be moved indoors, but is definitely gone from the grounds of Brookeville Academy.[Crowolf, 07/16/2013]
It used to be at the house near the corner of Georgia Ave and Brookville Rd, but they took it down. Don't have any idea where it is now. There's still a sign telling what it is though. There was no one to tell us where it went. Too bad, because I've lived here my whole life and never saw it.[Margaritachick, 05/30/2012]
