Statue Suspects Silent

Oxford, Miss. – Ole Miss Campus police have identified three white 19-year-old freshmen males from Georgia as suspects in the desecration of the James Meredith statue.

University of Mississippi Chief of Police Calvin Sellers said in a written statement that campus police had gathered enough evidence by late Wednesday to bring charges through the student judicial process against two of the students, and both state and federal authorities were working to determine whether criminal charges are necessary.  A third suspect was identified and questioned Thursday.

All three, represented by Oxford attorneys, declined late Thursday to be questioned by campus police.  The student’s names were not released because of privacy laws.
