Police have charged a suspect they believe is responsible for a series of incidents involving racist graffiti on Eastern Michigan University’s campus last year.


The suspect is a 29 year-old man and former EMU student named Eddie Curlin, who is currently serving a one-to-five year prison sentence on an unrelated charge involving stolen property.

Curlin is being charged with three counts of malicious destruction of property, four counts of identity theft, and one count of using computers to commit a crime.

He has been arraigned by the Washtenaw County District Court and is currently in the custody of the Michigan Department of Corrections.
