MU Police looking for person who drew swastika with feces

University of Missouri Police are still looking for the person who drew a swastika symbol made of feces on the wall of a campus residence hall.

MUPD found the swastika on the wall of a bathroom in Gateway Hall early on October 24.

ABC 17 News obtained police records through a Sunshine Law request Tuesday.

Records say peer advisers were completing rounds on the residence hall floors and encountered feces on the wall and on the floor of one of the bathrooms.

MUPD officers responded, and told the PAs to report any racially charged comments or discussion of the incident that were heard.

The door of that bathroom was locked overnight until maintenance could address the situation the next morning. When a student went to use the bathroom in the morning, he told a PA that there was still feces on the door handle, which maintenance said they may have missed due to the mess on the wall and floor.

The incident was logged as a hate crime and is still under investigation.
