Stanford University investigating noose in bush

(CNN) - Stanford University is looking into reports of a noose found hanging near a campus residence -- which could become a hate crime investigation.

Over the weekend, Stanford Department of Public Safety deputies found a white rope, about three feet long, suspended from a tall bush, according to a statement released by the California university Tuesday.

The noose was found near a residence for summer students.

The incident is currently being investigated as a "suspicious circumstance," according to the statement, but if more evidence is found, it may be re-classified as a hate crime.

"We feel it is important to state that a noose is recognized as a symbol of violence and racism directed against African American peoples. Such a symbol has no place on our campus," the university said.

A student visiting the campus took pictures and video of the rope.

The university's Department of Public Safety says that the incident is still under investigation.

CNN's Sarah Moon contributed to this report.

Dean calls noose found at University of Michigan hospital 'symbol of hate'
Ann Zaniewski, Detroit Free Press Published 7:59 p.m. ET June 21, 2019 | Updated 8:17 p.m. ET June 21, 2019

Law enforcement authorities at the University of Michigan are investigating the discovery Thursday of a noose at University Hospital.

In a message to faculty and staff, Marschall Runge, dean of the University of Michigan Medical School, executive vice president for Medical Affairs and CEO of Michigan Medicine, said the "symbol of hate and discrimination" was found at the workstation of two employees.

"We have taken immediate action to have this investigated as both an act of discrimination and a criminal act of ethnic intimidation," Runge said. "This act of hate violates all of the values that we hold dear and will not be tolerated."

Heather Young, public information officer for the university's Division of Public Safety and Security, said an employee found the noose at 11:25 a.m. on a desk in a staff area at the hospital.

"There (are) some leads that we have" in the investigation, she said Friday night. No further details were released.

Ian Demsky, a spokesman for the health system, provided Runge's statement to the Free Press but declined to answer any questions, citing the ongoing investigation.

Runge asked anyone with information to contact Security at 734-936-7890 or, or Compliance at 866-990-0111 or

"This incident impacts our entire community, and we stand strong as we make it clear to all that this organization — its leaders, faculty, staff and learners — fiercely value and defend equality, inclusiveness, respect and dignity for all, and the elimination of discrimination," Runge said.

Customer finds noose hanging at Home Depot in Wilmington

WILMINGTON, Del. (WPVI) -- Home Depot says it is investigating after a customer found a noose hanging in a Wilmington, Delaware store.

Lyonni Flowers says she found a rope, fashioned into a noose, at the store on Miller Road this past Friday.

Flowers said a store manager initially refused to respond when she and her sister made the store aware of what they'd found.

In an interview with Action News, Flowers said she was disheartened by the manager's response, and crushed by what she called an act of hate in her community.

In a statement Monday, Home Depot says the company is "appalled and disturbed by the incident, and has notified law enforcement."

The chain has not yet confirmed if there's any surveillance video that may identify who left the noose.
If you see a noose,call the cops!
