Recently Michigan police arrested former student Eddie Curlin for the crime.
Eddie is black.
The AP reported:
A 29-year-old black former Eastern Michigan University student has been arraigned on charges stemming from anti-black graffiti found on the Ypsilanti campus last year.
The university says Eddie Curlin, who studied there from 2014 to early 2016, was arraigned Monday in Washtenaw County District Court on three counts of malicious destruction of property, four counts of identity theft and one count of using computers to commit a crime.
Graffiti was found painted on exterior building walls in September and October 2016 and a racist message was found in a men’s restroom stall last spring.
The incidents led to protests by students, and the university offered a $10,000 reward for information.
