$5,000 reward offered amid probe of racist graffiti
Flint – A reward is being offered for information about racist graffiti found earlier this month at a residence hall at Kettering University in Michigan.
The school and Crime Stoppers are offering a combined $5,000 reward for any tip that can lead to an arrest. The school canceled classes on March 13 after at least two cases of racist and profane graffiti at Thompson Hall on the school’s campus in Flint.
WEYI-TV has reported that the graffiti targeted black students. And WJRT-TV reports a threatening note was slipped into a black student’s dorm room.
The university had canceled classes for its roughly 2,000 students for a school-wide meeting, though the meeting was later postponed. The engineering, science, math and business school says the graffiti was immediately removed after it was reported.
