The University of Michigan is investigating and the FBI maybe involved.

A possible hate crime took place last week at University Of Michigan Hospitals.  The University’s administration is taking this incident seriously according to CNN.com,

The university has “taken immediate action” to investigate the incident that occurred Thursday as an act of discrimination and criminal ethnic intimidation, said Dr. Marschall S. Runge, the dean of the University of Michigan Medical School.

“This act of hate violates all of the values that we hold dear and will not be tolerated,” Runge said in a statement, calling the noose a “symbol of hate and discrimination.”

One details that may make this investigation difficult is the fact that multiple people share that desk.  Therefore, they’re not completely sure who the target of the harassment was.  Finding the suspect and motive becomes much more difficult without knowing the intended victim.  The FBI may get involved according to CNN,

The FBI’s is aware of the incident, said Timothy R. Slater, the special agent in charge of the bureau’s Detroit office.

“If in the course of the local investigation, information comes to light of a potential federal civil rights violation, the FBI is prepared to investigate,” Slater said.
