NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Vanderbilt University officials have launched a hate crime investigation after three swastikas were found spray-painted inside a Jewish fraternity house.

The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/18BVyzK ) cited a statement that Provost Susan R. Wente sent to students Monday reporting that the graffiti was found Saturday after a party at the Alpha Epsilon Pi house.

Wente condemned use of the symbol, which she said is “associated with hate, anti-Semitism, violence, death, and murder.”

She said anyone with information about the swastikas should call Vanderbilt police.
