Noose Found Inside Louisiana High School Auditorium

Delhi Police are searching for the person who left a noose in the Delhi High School auditorium.

(Delhi is in Richland Parish in northeastern Louisiana.)

Chief Roy Williams said that according to Delhi High School principal Ramona Drungo, a janitor found the noose on the auditorium stage last week, just days after the June 16 bank holiday.

“An employee of the caretaker found the noose and he reported it to the warden and she in turn called the superintendent and he called me. I’m writing a report right now and I’m going to turn it over to the prosecution to see if there was any intent to do so on purpose and if so we will proceed with a hate crime,” Chief Williams said.

It has also been reported that several contractors are currently renovating the school, its football pitch and field house. Unfortunately, due to the renovations, the school has disabled their security cameras.

Chief Williams also reported that the auditorium was not locked when the incident occurred. He also confirmed that he does not believe students were involved in the incident.

“I’m making a report right now so I can pass it on to the prosecution to see if there was any intent to do this on purpose and if so we will proceed with the charges,” Chief Williams said. “It will be a hate crime.”

According to Richland County District Attorney Penny Douciere, the possible felony that a suspect could be charged with in these circumstances is related to Louisiana Revised Statute 14:40.5. This law includes a “public display of a noose on (the) property of another or public place; intent to intimidate”. It states that if convicted, the perpetrator of the crime may not be fined more than $5,000 or imprisoned with or without hard labor for no more than one year, or both.

Richland Parish Superintendent Sheldon Jones issued a statement on the incident, which read in part:

“The Richland Parish School Board will not tolerate any action of harassment or discrimination and is cooperating fully with law enforcement during this investigation.”
