Wheaton College president Ronald A. Crutcher has raised the reward for information on the Nov. 11 case of anti-Semitic graffiti found on the back door of the Jewish Life House, a student residence. No suspects have been identified, and Crutcher announced on Dec. 6 that the reward has been increased to $2,500 from the original $1,000. College spokesman Michael Graca said that unless new information comes to light, whoever committed the crime is unlikely to be apprehended. In other Wheaton news, 21-year-old student Samantha Barchard sustained non-life-threatening injuries Dec. 9 at about 8 p.m. when a driver struck her in a crosswalk on East Main Street, in front of the college. Police said the driver, Stephen Tapper, 61, of Stoughton, told police he could not see her due to fog and her dark clothing. He was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
