Amazon is halting construction at a facility in Windsor, Connecticut after workers discovered the seventh case of a "rope which could be interpreted as a noose" at the site.
The first six were discovered at the work site during the last week of April, according to local ABC affiliate WTNH.
The latest was Wednesday, when officers on a private duty assignment "were made aware of the discovery of a rope which could be interpreted as a noose hanging within overhead beams on the site," police said, according to NBC News.
