The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office confirmed its deputies are investigating an apparent hate crime that targeted a white Goldsboro family because their 14-year-old daughter was in a relationship with an African-American teenager.
According to a senior detective, the Sheriff’s Office is also sharing its findings with the State Bureau of Investigation.
“It just makes your heart sink,” Amanda Miller, the girl’s mother, told ABC11. “I’ve always tried to instill in her be friends with who is good to you. Like who is good to you. Make sure that you know … it doesn’t matter what color somebody is, and it doesn’t matter what race they are.”
Investigators report the alleged attack occurred on Thursday, when vandals spray-painted the family’s minivan with a swastika and several racial epithets, including “N***** loving b****.”
