A woman presumed to be Casey Nocket, 21, is seen writing on a rock face at one of Utah’s five national parks.


A New York woman is the prime suspect in a spate of vandalisms that left a portion of Colorado National Monument defaced.
Casey Nocket, 21, who posted photos of graffiti she claimed to have drawn in seven national parks and the monument, is the focus of an investigation into images painted on rock in spectacular venues across the West.
Images have been found in Rocky Mountain National Park and in Zion and Canyonlands national parks in Utah, as well.
