Several Nooses Found At Windsor Amazon Construction Site WINDSOR, CT — Police are investigating after several nooses were found at an Amazon construction site in Windsor. The initial incident occurred when police were dispatched to the 1201 Kennedy Road site Tuesday afternoon on a report of suspicious activity.
A construction company supervisor reported that earlier Wednesday a hangman’s noose was discovered hanging from a steel beam on the second floor of the building, police said. The incident was documented and a site safety team removed and discarded the noose.
The area where the noose was found is not monitored by surveillance cameras and is accessible to hundreds of employees from various companies.
Then on Wednesday afternoon, Windsor officers responded to a second report of a rope that was thrown around a beam. This second incident was not a noose, police said.
Police responded again to the site Thursday morning when detectives were notified that five additional ropes that could be interpreted as nooses were located at various locations on different floors throughout the building. These ropes were collected as evidence and will undergo testing to identify potential suspects.
