Natick home receives 2 threatening racist letters

NATICK, MASS. (WHDH) - Natick Police are investigating a series of threatening letters filled with racial slurs and death threats that police say were left on a resident’s doorstep as a possible hate crime.

Police received a report from a man who found two threatening letters on his doorstep on two consecutive days.

According to police, the first letter, which was handwritten, was found on Thursday morning and the second letter, which was typed, was found on Friday night.

The letters cited Donald Trump and the “clearing out” of the White House. The threats, death among them, targeted the subject’s black and Latino roommates. The letters warn that Natick is a “white-only town.”

The Natick Police Chief, James G. Hicks, said in a release that the department is taking the case very seriously and treating it as a potential hate crime.

Anyone with information regarding either incident has been asked to contact police at 508-647-9500.
