Police: Wire outside of building is not a noose

Sacred Heart noose

OELWEIN, Iowa (KWWL) - Oelwein police caught wind of a Facebook post of an electrical wire resembling a noose outside of Sacred Heart Elementary.

After examination, police say it was not a noose, but an electrical wire looped at its end.

Police assume the end of the wire was fastened back to the wire in case school custodians need it for further electrical work.

The school is permanently closed, and has not been in operation since January.
