Update in the Hate/Bias Investigation

Dear Campus Community,

 

On April 27, 2017, at approximately 11:39 p.m., the University of Maryland Police Department responded to Fraternity Row #5 for a hate/bias incident that occurred earlier in the day. It was reported to UMPD that between 1:30 p.m. and 1:45 p.m., a noose was found inside the building.

Once we were notified of this incident, detectives were assigned to begin an investigation into this hateful act. While our detectives continue to follow up with leads into this matter, here is what we can share at this time with our community:

  • The noose was reported to be found in the kitchen.

  • The time frame as to when this incident occurred has been narrowed down to between 1:06 p.m. and 1:10 p.m.

  • A video review of our cameras around the exterior of the fraternity house and Fraternity Row revealed nothing of evidentiary value.

  • Our detectives have interviewed members of the fraternity and others who may have had knowledge of the incident. Detectives continue to conduct follow up interviews.

As we continue with our investigation, we are committed to a thorough, comprehensive, and transparent process with our community. We have met with members of our community and heard your concerns.

We will continue to update our community as information becomes available at www.umpdnews.umd.edu . Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Det. Barnosky at 301-405-3555 or email at investigations@umpd.umd.edu . Individuals wishing to remain anonymous may email http://www.umpd.umd.edu/contact/anonymous_tip.cfm .
