EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah — Authorities with the Utah County Sheriff's Office are investigating after racist vandalism was found Monday in Eagle Mountain.
The vandalism was found inside a portable bathroom at a Facebook data center construction site, according to spokesperson Sgt. Spencer Cannon.
Photos showed the statement “Kill a ****** day 11/29” written on the bathroom door.
All 1,300 workers on the site were sent home after the graffiti was found.
It's believed the vandalism occurred Friday night, but investigators believe it will be difficult to determine who wrote the statement due to the number of people on the site.
Mortensen Construction, which maintains control over the site until it's completed and turned over to Facebook, has offered a $50,000 reward for any information that helps identify the person who wrote the graffiti.
The Eagle Mountain Data Center is one of only 17 such Facebook facilities in the world.
