The U.S. Air Force Academy has released a 174-page report of an investigation into anti-black racial messages that turned out to be a hoax.
An African-American cadet candidate who wrote the messages initially attempted to blame two of his classmates for the writings, the report shows. The writings appeared on message boards outside of his own room and that of four other black cadet candidates on Sept. 25.
That perpetrator later blamed a concussion for his actions after failing a polygraph test conducted on Oct. 24. The hoax incident was shared with the media on Nov. 7.
The report, obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation through the Freedom of Information Act, also suggests investigators had suspicions about the suspect early on in the investigation.
The incident, which occurred at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School in Colorado, gained national attention after Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria gave a speech denouncing the incident.
