Police are investigating after finding an object that they said looks like a noose in a tree at the CREC Civic Leadership High School in Enfield.
A section of orange electrical wire tied at the end, making it appear like a noose, was found in a tree behind the football field, according to police.
The noose-like object was approximately 20-feet high in the tree. Officials said the object was reported to them on April 12 at 7 p.m.
