An employee at African American Student Affairs, 1322 E. First St., reported receiving a suspicious phone call Thursday.

The employee said he took a call at 8:43 a.m. from an angry male who said there would be a fund-raiser in Tucson for Marcia Clark to help her cope with the abuse she took during the trial.

The employee listened for three to four minutes as the man became continually more upset.

At the end of the call, the man said, "You know that Jewish blood was spilled on the streets of Brentwood and it will be avenged somehow." He then hung up.

The man was in his 20s with a slight unknown accent. He used no racial slurs and made no threats directly to the employee.

A skinned cow head was found on the front porch of Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity, 1449 N. Cherry Ave., Wednesday morning.

A member of the fraternity found the bloody head on the porch at 5:30 a.m., and said it could have been placed there sometime after 1 a.m. The member could not think of anyone who would have put the head on the porch.

Police have no suspects.

The victim secured the bike to a parking post on the east side of the building at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. When he returned at 10:30 p.m., he found his bike and cable lock gone.

The bike is valued at $200.
