The play “A Poison Squad of Whispering Women”, produced by the Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette, opened Thursday for a special three-evening run at the Fowler House in Lafayette. The more intimate viewing experience brings audiences close to a story from the past with modern relevance.

Indiana University Bloomington Provost Lauren Robel sent an email to the campus community Tuesday saying groundskeepers found five flyers purporting to be from the Ku Klux Klan. The email says they were identical to "neighborhood watch" flyers residents found throughout Bloomington Monday. 

The email says IU Police are investigating. They're working with Bloomington and state police. 

The phone number listed on the bottom of a Ku Klux Klan flyer distributed throughout Bloomington Monday is linked to a lawsuit filed by a man who was injured while protesting the 2017 ‘Unite the Right’ rally in Charlottesville.

Court documents say Bill Burke of Athens, Ohio was among 35 people injured after James Fields Jr. drove his car through a crowd of protestors. One woman died during the attack.

The Bloomington Police Department is investigating after they say residents found neighborhood watch flyers claiming to be from the Ku Klux Klan on Monday. Captain Ryan Pedigo says they received 10 reports of flyers being located in the city so far.

The flyers include the image of a hooded figure and say, “Do your part to keep white communities safe and report suspicious activity. You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake.”

Police say they are investigating who is responsible for the flyers and whether they are affiliated with the KKK.
