Salem family receives threatening notes from alleged KKK member

Posted: Updated:

A Salem family has enlisted the help of the police after they received several handwritten racial death threats.  

The family said the notes have been left on their doorstep more than once and are all signed “KKK” with a cross.

The notes are of similar nature with racial slurs and threats of being watched by the author.

One note said, “you and your family will die by the hands of me, die slow.”

Another note threatened to kill a family member if the police were called again.

Neighbor Brian Lewallen said this type of behavior is cowardly.

“If you can’t deal with your neighbors in a way that is socially reasonable, then what are you doing aside from stoking fears?”

Salem police said they have detectives assigned to the case but so far they have no suspects.
