June 10, 2016

Detectives of the Southern Illinois University Carbondale Department of Public Safety, in coordination with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Jackson County State’s Attorney’s Office, have identified the maker of a video that advocated racial violence on campus.

The viral video was posted on social media near the end of the spring semester and removed following a request from the university. None of the actions promoted in the video occurred.

The individual, a 19-year-old white male who resides in the Chicago region, admitted making the video as a prank. He is not affiliated with the university or associated with any of the groups or organizations active in protests at the end of the semester. In addition, police have found no evidence of involvement of the fraternity allegedly involved in the making of the video.
