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...
I'll raise you $1000. This was an inside job.
You know it.
Would love to see if they could recover some DNA, as I believe they can often find markers for the race of the perp.
Years back I got busted by personnel for hanging a dozen stuffed bunnies my cube neighbor was selling. I made little hang mans nooses, and did my best to recreate the group hanging that was photographed after the Lincoln Assassination..
They were not as concerned about the prank as the fact that I wasted rubber bands tying their hands behind their back and made little blindfolds from company post-its.
What a strange world.
Of course this was done by lefties. This was done by union thugs to get their black exploited serfs to go vote to keep the union lackeys in power to suck the blood of this country including our black compatriots.
Here we go again.
All the BS about the “racist” Tea Party, and suddenly this, on election day. Anybody know if Madonna Constantine was in the neighborhood recently?
One good thing about the left, and one promise they have kept: They are completely transparent.
Now, at least, the CBC will have something to keep them busy, and out of their home districts, after losing the House.
Of course this was done by lefties. This was done by union thugs to scare their exploited black serfs to go vote to keep the union lackeys in power to suck the blood of this country including our black used and exploited compatriots.
LOL - They were more worried over the realism and going the extra mile, I love it.
If an employee of mine did that I would laugh and compliment his effort on the little details. Of course when you work in the tool and die industry we have a much different view on things than most office HR people, hell we could probably invade Cuba with what is stashed in the toolboxes around here.
Every one of these has proven to be a hoax, perpetrated by the “victim.”
Got that right.
“Im going to take Church Member Perpetrator for $100 Alex.”
LOL. This is a pretty cheap and probably a pretty effective GOTV tool. It cost the rats a lot less than the “george bush drags black people behind his car” ad in 2004.
The FBI, CIA, Secret Service, National Security, NCIS, Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force, National Guards, Coast Guard and Salvation Army need to mobilize on this IMMEDIATELY!
What is a hoax publicly perpetrated by a victim against the base opposing that ones perceived self image as the victim...?
I have a deer hanging in the garage...........
I use that knot all the time, have for years. I must be a racist, I even use a close version of it to tie my fishhooks.
But I too..tie a noose-like knot..for my fishing hooks.
It's an easy knot..and a good knot.
This is a pretty cheap and probably a pretty effective ...
Good point. Who else would have ready access to a “doll of color” ?
I agree with you entirely.
Also I’m rooting for the beavers to ultimately de feet you in their quest to be masters of your pond.
The congregation never saw it. But they sure got a good picture for the media.
****”This was meant to rattle our congregation,” Strong said. “Very disturbing, very disturbing.”*****
Oh for heaven’s sake, it is a doll! What if it had been a dead cat nailed to the church door?
I wouldn't be at all surprised.
Oh, I don't know. If it happened to be a couple of teenagers just being stupid as teenagers tend to be, I think that's a bit much.
OK, exactly how many knuckle dragging KKK members would just happen to have black cabbage patch doll lying around?
it’s a hard world...somewhere some cracker is getting his face kicked in or his woman assaulted just for being white
where’s the outrage on that?
This is going to depress the black doll vote! Oh, wait. I forgot that the doll can still vote DemocRAT once it’s deceased.
Oh, a hate crime. Oh, the humanity.
