As reported on KNOE-TV on Thursday, June 24th, residents in Chatham woke up Thursday morning to an unpleasant surprise on their front lawns. Jackson Parish Sheriff Andy Brown says bags containing a rock, and a picture of a woman urging people to join the Ku Klux Klan were distributed to around 20-30 Chatham residents.
“I think it’s pretty much a cowardly act on the part of whoever put these out here to try and slander this person,” Brown said.
He furthers said this was not the first time this has happened in Chatham.
“Another individual, about a week ago had the same type bag, rock, and a picture in it labeling somebody a pedophile,” he said.
Brown believes the incidents are related. As for the woman in the picture, he says she is not a member of the KKK.
“She works for the ambulance service here. She is doing her clinical and is trying to become a paramedic.”
When asked who could possibly be behind the attack the victim says she doesn’t know.
“I have tried to get her to look back in her mind somewhere and maybe come up with somebody who has a problem with her, but she can’t think of anybody,” Brown said.
Once the person responsible is identified Brown said he will pursue a littering charge against them. He also expects the victim to pursue civil charges for slander. If you have any information in regard to this you are asked to contact the Jackson Parish Sheriff’s Office at 318-259-9021.
