HSHS St. Mary’s: Police Investigating ‘Hate Crime’ Vandalism

September 11 – HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital says it is working with the Decatur Police Department in connection with a threatening racial message scrawled on a stall in a women’s bathroom.

“We completely denounce any act of racism and were disgusted when we discovered this vandalism,” the hospital said in a statement. “We immediately filed a police report and are working with the Decatur Police Department to solve this criminal act and hate crime.”

The message was written sometime between midnight Saturday and early Monday morning.
