3 students to be questioned in statue vandalism

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- The University of Mississippi wants to question three white students in connection with the vandalism of the statue of James Meredith, who in 1962 became the first black student to enroll in the then all-white university.

But attorneys for the three students aren't allowing them to be questioned.

Meanwhile, university spokesman Danny Blanton says Friday that the school's findings have been turned over to the district attorney's office.

Blanton says the university will also proceed with internal disciplinary action through a judicial panel that consists of both faculty and students.

Police on Sunday found a noose tied around the neck of the statue, along with an old Georgia flag with a Confederate battle emblem in its design. The design has since been updated to exclude the emblem.
