The monument, which was commissioned by anonymous patrons and erected in 1980, featured messages that some believed were meant to guide future generations. Other people saw the monument as having more sinister connotations, which have given way to rampant conspiracy theories in recent months.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is working to learn who detonated the bomb. It’s unclear what charges potential suspects may face.
