The brothers of Cornell University’s Sigma Pi returned from break this week to an unpleasant find; their fraternity house was graffitied with “Kill Your Rapists” in red paint.
The perpetrator allegedly hit other spots along campus. According to Ithaca Voice,
“Cornell won’t save you,” was written in red paint at Baker War Memorial Flagpole and at a bus stop by Risley Hall. A black hammer and sickle were found painted on a statue of Andrew Dickson White — the university’s first president — and red symbols were on Goldwin Smith Hall pillars behind the statue.
More graffiti on Sigma Pi Fraternity at 730 University Ave. states “Kill your rapist,” and depicts a guillotine where “Off with your heads,” is written.
Sounds pretty intense. According to The Cornell daily crime log, the spray painted message was also found on the east door of Milstein Hall, causing $1,500 worth of damage, and at Balch Hall on an archway and exterior west side of the building.
Ithaca police are currently investigating the incidents separately, although they openly admit that they could also be linked.
“We do not have a usable picture of the suspect(s) at this time,”Officer Jamie Williamson said in an email. “If that changes we will surely let you know.”
Hopefully they find someone soon. Stay safe, everyone!
