(St. Peter, MN) – Police are investigating after a threatening and hate filled letter was received by a local family.
St. Peter Police Chief Matt Peters says they’re trying to track down the source of the letter, but he won’t give any more details because it is an ongoing investigation.
A picture of the letter was posted on social media by Kelly Brevig, who’s a relative of the people who received it. “Words can not begin to describe this HATE. How could ANYONE feel this way against others…. I am truly at a loss for words. Please help stop the hate. #Unitedwestand This is my family ❤️”
The letter says that “f*ggots” are not welcome in “small town rural Minnesota” and threatens death possibly by way of a home fire or a gun.
The posting of the letter on social media has led to an outpouring of support for the family.
