MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) -An investigation into notes including racial slurs that were found in the Ball State's men's basketball office has yielded no results, school officials said Thursday.
In a news release, Ball State spokesman Tony Proudfoot said Gene Burton, the school's director of public safety, had told him that ``all available leads in the case have been exhausted without positive results and that the investigation is at an impasse pending the emergence of any new information.''
``If we get more information, then we'll follow those leads. But at this point, we've chased all the leads,'' Proudfoot said Thursday night.
Burton said more than 30 people had been interviewed in connection with the investigation.
``The evidence at hand has led to no suspects,'' Burton said in the release.
The school said state police had reviewed the steps Ball State had taken and agreed there were no new avenues to pursue at this time.
The investigation began June 24 after the notes were slipped under the office doors of then-men's basketball coach Ronny Thompson and other staff members. They included racial slurs along with the words ``cheaters'' and ``liars,'' school officials said.
Proudfoot said the notes were tested with three different fingerprinting processes at two different police agencies but the tests uncovered no useable prints.
Thompson resigned July 12 amid accusations that he broke NCAA rules, and he cited a ``racially hostile work environment'' in his resignation letter.
Ball State hired Lehigh coach Billy Taylor on Aug. 7 to succeed Thompson, who finished 9-22 in his one season.
