FAIR LAWN, NJ - Mayor Kurt Peluso has launched his own personal investigation into the apparent noose a homeowner woke up to on Sunday morning and the ongoing mystery of how it got there.

Peluso released the following on his Facebook page:

Today I heard back from Altice/Optimum and the rope is not theirs. Yesterday I spoke to PSE&G and Verizon and both confirmed they did not put up the rope. The rope was not from a utility company or the Borough. I also walked around the neighborhood and could not find any rope attached to any wires. I spoke to the residents and assured them we will do everything we can. Our Chief has spoken to the Bergen County Prosecutors office and it is an active investigation.
