An 18-year-old Drake University student in Iowa is responsible for writing at least four racist notes on campus, including one she sent to herself, according to authorities.

Kissie Ram and another student reported receiving the racist notes on November 28 at Drake University, but Ram's story of victimization started changing.

'We started having a little different tone of a conversation with the two victims,' Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek said.

'Unfortunately, one of them admitted that she was, in fact, responsible for the note that was written and reported to the police,' Parizek told KCCI8.


An African-American student had received a similar racist note prior to Ramís apparent hoaxes. The origin of that note remains unknown and is still being investigated.
