The mysterious Stonehenge-like structure was completely destroyed when an unknown individual blew it up with a bomb last year.
Originally constructed in 1980 at a cost of $100,000, the stones were often referred to as the "American Stonehenge" and were thought to serve as some form of foundational reference intended for the survivors of an unspecified apocalyptic event at some point in the future.
The man who commissioned the structure was known only by a pseudonym - Robert C. Christian - who claimed to represent "a small group of loyal Americans".
Over the years, however, some people came to perceive the stones as 'Satanic' in nature, prompting anonymous individuals to vandalize and deface them.
This came to a head on the morning of July 6th, 2022 when an unknown individual was caught on CCTV planting some sort of explosive device on the stones before driving away.
A few seconds later, a tremendous explosion blew a large part of the monument to smithereens.
The remaining sections were later demolished as well due to safety concerns.
Exactly who was responsible for the attack, however, still remains a total mystery, with authorities seemingly no closer to identifying the culprit some twelve months later.
As things stand, it seems possible that the person responsible for the bombing is likely to remain just as mysterious as the stones themselves.
