Lawrence School Pentagram

A pentagram splattered with red syrup was located behind the Lawrence School on Tuesday.

Strange happenings are occurring in Falmouth.

On Tuesday morning, July 16, a Lawrence School custodian reported to police that a pentagram had been drawn behind the school. The pentagram, a five-pointed star often surrounded by a circle, is a magical symbol, commonly associated with Wicca and Satanism, as well as Freemasonry.

“There was a pentagram drawn in white chalk on the back parking lot and chairs that belonged to the school set in a circle around it,” Falmouth Police Lieutenant Douglas M. DeCosta said.

The symbol and chairs were splattered with a red substance that appeared to be blood, Lt. DeCosta said. Police determined the substance was actually syrup.

The custodian and police reviewed security camera footage, which showed two teenage boys at the scene at 9:30 PM on Monday, July 15. The teenagers could not be clearly seen in the footage, because it was dark outside and they were wearing hoods.

The footage showed them “taking photos of themselves in the chairs,” Lt. DeCosta said.
