Noose found by construction workers in Grosse Pointe South High School

Grosse Pointe Public School officials are investigating the discovery of a noose that was found hanging in a construction area at Grosse Pointe South High School.
Turner Construction Co. informed the school district at about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday that the noose was spotted during a final safety walk-through the night before.
“The noose appeared to be fashioned out of a drapery cord, so it was by a window,” said David Kelly, vice president-general manager for Turner Construction.
The site has been off-limits to students and staff for the last three weeks due to construction. But the district will still be a part of the investigation.
“The majority of the building has been turned over to Turner Construction to do construction,” said Jon Dean, deputy superintendent for human resources and educational services. “There are portions of the building where up until a week or two ago, some Grosse Pointe staff would’ve been working, but it’s in a different portion of the building.”

Police were notified of the noose. The technology department is currently reviewing the security cameras, but Dean says they may not have been turned on due to the summer recess and construction.
Within the last week, the construction company had a conversation about harassment, racism, and race, said Dean.
“Anyone found responsible shall be removed from the site as appropriate, and referred to local authorities for criminal prosecution,” said Kelly.
