An image released Wednesday shows a woman walking to a car in the parking lot of one of the buildings targeted. The car closely resembles a photo of a car released by Oklahoma City police after two buildings were targeted with similar hate speech last week.
“Investigators believe the alleged suspect for all three incidents is the same suspect believed to be involved in similar incidents that recently occurred at various locations in Oklahoma City. NPD is working closely with the Oklahoma City Police Department on this investigation,” officials said in a news release.
Oklahoma City police on Wednesday also released video taken at the Oklahoma City offices of the Chickasaw Nation of the woman wanted for questioning.
Anyone with information about the incidents or who recognizes the woman from the photo is asked to call Norman police at 366-6447. Tips can be given anonymously by calling Norman Crime Stoppers at 366-7867.
