Laurel police were trying Monday to determine who hung a doll from a noose in front of an African American church on Laurel Park Drive late Saturday or early Sunday, authorities said.
A maintenance man found the doll, which was hanging from a tree in front of the City of Zion Church, about 7:30 a.m. Sunday, said Gregory Strong, the pastor. Someone had written racial slurs on the doll, along with references to President Obama, he said.
"This was meant to rattle our congregation," Strong said. "Very disturbing, very disturbing."
Strong said he called police, and the doll was removed before congregants arrived for services. He said he thought the doll was meant to scare congregants in the days before Tuesday's election.
"This was not coincidence," he said.
Jim Collins, a Laurel police spokesman, said that officers collected fingerprints from the doll and rope and remained in the area, undercover, looking for suspects. There were no leads Monday, he said.

$10 says it was done by a member of the church or the black community to stir things up today.
How many lately have been proven fakes? Enough that I'm pretty skeptical of any until there are more facts.
I'll see that and raise you $100. This is exactly the sort of cheap stunt that ONLY the racists on the Left pull to get some sort of payoff on their investment in victimhood.
A doll? Come on. People really need to get a grip.
Maybe a depressed doll?
Someone would have to be monumental stupid to do something like that.
I’m going to take “Church Member Perpetrator” for $100 Alex.
Hey guys at church... buy some cheap security cameras. No excuse not to.
Obama Voter did it.
Totally agree. It’s an inside job.
Another Munchausen “attack”?
And/or a Democrat operative.
And again, church guys, if you have any gang-bangers in there, train some of them to set up security cameras. Get them out of gangs and into a good, community-helping business. Again, not excuse not to.
I don’t care if this was done by a member of the black community or the white community. Who ever did it should be locked-up for a few days in the local jail with the entire population of that jail knowing exactly what the slime-ball did.
Yep, I sense a set-up here too.
Message: better get out and vote or its Jim Crow all over again.
Agreed, he would be scared sh*tless once word got out what he was in for.
No it was a message from homosexual activists that the church causes gay dolls to kill themselves.
Looks more like a David Caradine “copy-cat” stunt...
