Police: Multiple racist messages sent to family in Derry, N.H.

DERRY, N.H. (WHDH) - Police are investigating after multiple racist messages were sent to a family in Derry, New Hampshire.

Police said racist slurs were keyed into Jaci Stimson’s car on Oct. 21. Her car was parked outside her house on Scobie Pond Road back on Oct. 21. Stimson lives at the house with her 7-year-old biracial son and she told police her car was damaged during the night while she was home.

On Oct. 24, police said a sign had been placed at the end of Stimson’s driveway. The sign contained racial slurs and inappropriate messages. Wednesday, Stimson said she found her car vandalized again while parked in her driveway. She said she also found fried chicken and watermelon had been thrown at her car.

Stimson said she has lived at her house for five years and has never seen anything like this before. She said her son is upset and asked her why people do not like him.

“I’m angry, I’m disappointed. I didn’t know this still existed,” said Stimson. “Maybe I’m naive, I live in this world where I think everybody is good. I’m not sorry, I didn’t do anything wrong. My son’s beautiful, he has no reason to feel ashamed, we’re not ashamed.”

Police in Derry are still investigating these series of incidents and say the crimes appear to be racially motivated.

Anyone with information about the crimes is asked to contact Derry Police at 603-432-6111.
