Sheriff contacts SLED to investigate hate mail

WINNSBORO – The Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office is looking into the source of hate mail that has been mailed to several residents in the Dawkins community.  Three of those letters (with envelopes) have been turned in to the Sheriff’s Office. The white letter-size envelopes are addressed (resident’s name and address) by hand, but there is no return address or other marks on the envelopes. Sheriff Will Montgomery is asking anyone who has received one of these letters to please contact the Sheriff’s Office.

“We have contacted SLED to help us with processing the letters for possible DNA and fingerprints,” a spokesperson for the Sheriff’s office posted.

“If you receive one of the letters and have not opened it, please do not. We would like to be able to preserve the letter for processing.”

Anyone with information about the letter, call 803-635-4141 or 803-635-5511.
