Utah Artists Add Faces To Mural Of People Killed By Police

Artists in Utah have added two faces to a mural depicting Utah residents who have been killed by police. The Salt Lake Tribune reported artists painted the faces of Cody Belgard and Allen Nelson on the mural in Salt Lake City. Belgard was shot in the back and killed by police in the city’s Rose Park in 2018. Nelson died in 2012 while officers attempted to arrest him. The mural on a building wall has become a memorial where people leave signs, flowers and other mementos. Police said an image depicting George Floyd was vandalized June 21 but immediately repainted.
