Future School and Clinic for Autistic Children Vandalized

A local center set to open this summer was vandalized over the weekend. 

Toilets torn from the wall, windows shattered and a gym destroyed, are just a few of the damages found inside the former Wilmot Grade School in Kenosha County.

The former school was suppose to be transformed into a school and clinic for autistic children. The grand opening was scheduled for June 6th.

Farrah Sonnenberg was supposed to purchase the building Tuesday, but the vandalism delayed her plans.

\"How are we going to get this up and running in time for the kids and for the families?\" she asked.

Farrah first toured the building back in September and has been working with Trevor-Wilmot Consolidated Grade School District to buy the building. They were suppose to close on Tuesday morning. The school district's insurance will cover the damage, but it could be a few weeks before the damage is repaired. 

Investigators believe several people are responsible.

If you have any information on the culprits, you are encouraged to call Kenosha Police.
