The investigation into who left threatening notes of a racial nature for three black female students late last month at the University of St. Thomas continues at "full steam," said Spokesman Jim Winterer.

The investigation into who left threatening notes of a racial nature for three black female students late last month at the University of St. Thomas continues at "full steam," said Spokesman Jim Winterer.

Still, there are no suspects, Winterer said.

Winterer said authorities are still analyzing two handwritten notes that were slipped under the students' residence hall door in an effort to learn who might have placed them. A third racially-slurred note was found in a computer lab where one of the targeted students was working.

There also was a message that was written in magic marker on the dorm room door in John Paul II Hall.

Authorities and school officials have not commented much on the notes. "We don't want to compromise the investigation."

No notes have been found since the last of the for messages surfaced on Oct. 30.

A week after more than 1,000 students, faculty and staff joined in a march to support the three students and decry the hate crime, a guard continues to be posted outside the students' room.
