Wayland High on alert after discovery of threatening message

Posted by Martin Finucane May 2, 2007 03:02 PM


The Wayland Police Department has stepped up its presence at Wayland High School after a threatening message was painted at the nearby aqueduct this week.

A man walking his dog Monday noticed the words "5/12/07 Don't Go To School, Wayland High Must Die, Just Like V-Tech" had been spraypainted on the side of a Massachusetts Water Resource Authority building next to the school basketball courts.

Today more graffiti was discovered along the aqueduct, including the word "Die" painted on a tree, "Wayland sux" on a big rock and "Wayland dies" on another building.

Police Chief Robert Irving said police believe all the messages were painted at the same time. He said an officer would be stationed at the high school on May 12, a Saturday, when some extracurricular activities are planned at the school.

Anyone with information about the graffiti is asked to call (508) 358-4721.
