Report detailing threats at UW-Parkside sent to District Attorney

KENOSHA -- The Kenosha County Sheriff's Department says a report detailing the extensive investigation into the threats at UW-Parkside, during which a rubber-band noose was found on campus, followed by a second noose and a "hit list" was sent to the Kenosha County District Attorney's Office for review.

Officials say it is expected that it will take the DA's Office a significant amount of time to read and process the information contained in the report due to its "sheer volume."

Sheriff's officials say the number of people interviewed in the case included three suspects and 43 witnesses.

Officials say there were seven separate incidents on the UW-Parkside campus that were investigated and included in this report, including:

    Sheriff's officials have recommended charges (disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer) against 21-year-old Khalilah Ford for the "death lists" and threatening note. Officials say Kasey Pasqualini admitted responsibility for the flyer with noose on it, questioning campus racism and was removed from campus with no criminal charges recommended. Officials have recommended charges against Janet Upmann (disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer) for the racial slur written on the white board.

    The remaining incidents listed above have not been resolved, and officials ask anyone with information to contact the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department, at which time these issues would be looked at again.
