Threatening writing containing the first names of four individuals was found in two boys restrooms at Oswego High School on Tuesday, Sept. 25. The Oswego Police Department, with the help of the school, is investigating the situation.
Along with the four names written on one of the walls, both of the messages included a date of Oct. 9. The writing has since been removed from the walls.
