NEWARK, Del. — New Castle County police are investigating a hate crime in Newark where a couple found a white cross with a racial slur in the front yard of the home where they have lived for 22 years.

Wayne Parson, who lives at the home with his wife, tells The News Journal  he is trying to figure out why someone would do such a thing. He says his family has lived in the neighborhood for decades with no trouble. For many years, they were the only black family in the neighborhood.

Police responded to a home in the Delaplane Court area Monday where the cross was found. Along with the racial slur, the message “Burn in hell” is also written. Police believe the cross was placed in the yard sometime overnight.
