New Castle County Police are investigating a hate crime at a home in Newark, DE.

It happened sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning in the Delaplane Court community.

Wayne Parson, the 58-year-old homeowner, notified police after finding a cross made out of a pipe material on his front lawn with racial slurs painted on it.

“It said ‘I hate the n-word,’ three times,” said Parson, an African American. “At the bottom it said ‘burn in hell.’”

Parson, who has lived in the neighborhood for 22 years, says that he’s shocked.

“It was clearly unexpected. I get along with all my neighbors.”
