The head belonging to a statue of Jesus at a church in Sudbury, Ontario has been recovered.
The stolen Jesus head story went viral last week after photos of the bizarre red terracotta replacement head spread like wildfire across social media.

On Sunday, during mass at Sainte-Anne-des-Pins Catholic Church, parish priest Gérald Lajeunesse announced to the congregation that a woman returned the head on Friday, after reading stories about it in the news and social media, the CBC reported Sunday.
According to Lajeunesse, the person who took the head was suffering from personal problems.
