The investigation to find the person or persons responsible for the March 1 bias incident in Coles Tower remains ongoing. Director of Safety and Security Randy Nichols speculated that it was unlikely the party that wrote "I love Meatful Monday. F*g n***er" on a white board on the 15th floor of the building would come forward and confess at this point.
"I think the person is afraid to come forward," he said. "They are ashamed of what they have done. I would urge them to come forward and clear the matter up."
Nichols added that the window of time for the act has been narrowed since the start of the investigation. He said signs strongly indicate that the incident occurred between either 10:20 and 11 p.m. or between 1 and 2 a.m.
"I have my theory," Nichols said. "I've been particularly interested in people who had access to the stairwell during what I believe to be the time frame it occurred."
