Reports say Police are tracking down the identity of the person behind a series of letters being sent to Trump supporters in New Hampshire, threatening to burn down their homes.
Kelly, a Milford resident who asked to be identified only by her first name, said she received one of the letters.
“Dear neighbor,” the letter read. “You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election.”
The anonymous author went on to say Kelly should hope her home insurance has fire coverage.
“I was very taken aback,” Kelly said.
Milford police said the same letter was mailed to other homes that have signs supporting Trump’s presidential campaign. The department is now investigating and has contacted the state Attorney General’s Office.
“This is my home,” Kelly said. “You’re not supposed to threaten my home. I’m very worried in the sense that this is going on in my town.”
Two others from Brookline have also received the same letter.
Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley said, “I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat.”
He said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and added whoever is sending the letters may face serious charges.
“Not only with us, with criminal threatening,” he continued. “It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.”
According to Kelly, she wanted to encourage others who have received the same letter to contact their local authorities, that is why she shared her story.
