Georgia Woman Accused of Posing As KKK Member, Allegedly Sent Racist Letters To Families

A Georgia woman posed as a member of the Ku Klux Klan and allegedly sent racist letters to Atlanta metro-area families according to KTVZ. Terresha Lucas, 30, has been accused of sending racially motivated letters to the homes of families in Douglasville, an Atlanta suburb. Lucas was arrested and charged  last week with eight counts of terroristic threats and acts. Douglasville families told WGCL-TV they got handwritten letters in their mailboxes from a man claiming he was from the KKK, with a long red beard who threatened to kill their families.

“The letter is using the N-word, talking about the KKK, hanging people, killing kids, killing whole families, and setting houses on fire,” one father told the news station. Families started getting letters last December, Atlanta’s FOX 5 reported.

“The notes threatened to burn their houses down and kill them and said that they didn’t belong in the neighborhood,” Detective Nathan Shumaker told the station.

Police said that similar letters were found in the residents’ mailboxes on Feb. 17, Feb. 22, March 1, and March 3. At least seven black residents reported receiving such notes, however, police believe there were likely more.

According to police, they went door to door in the neighborhood, checking doorbell and security cameras after the first notes were reported. After a investigation was conducted, authorities connected the evidence, obtained a warrant, and searched Lucas’ home, linking her to the incidents.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News that Lucas appeared in court  last week and was denied bond.
