Suspect Identified in Salisbury University Graffiti Incidents

Salisbury University Website

A suspect has been identified in the racist graffiti incidents on the campus of Salisbury University.

But the identity has not been revealed to the public.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the case has been sent to the Wicomico County state’s attorney’s office.

The paper reports that it is not believed that the individual is connected to the campus.

The probe began late last year with the discovery of racist graffiti in Fulton Hall.

Then just last week it showed up again in Henson and Fulton.

University President Charles Wright denounced the incidents.

The school cancelled classes last Thursday for a day of healing during which the university president met with students to talk about the incidents.
