Over 50 underage girls in four states were sent creepy packages at school; FBI on alert
Reports state that the incident came to light after two girls at an Alabama elementary school received the package in the mail at their school, triggering a massive probe.
Two underage girls in an Alabama school were reportedly sent unsolicited and creepy packages over the course of last week. The FBI is now on alert after similar packages were sent to over 50 underage girls in at least three other states, the authorities said, according to reports.
Reports state that the incident came to light after two girls at an Alabama elementary school received the package in mail at their school, triggering a massive probe by the authorities to find out who is behind the incidents. The Covington County District Attorney’s Office said that Alabama school officials warned parents about the packages on Sunday after two Phoenix City girls received the parcels last week.
Authorities said that the packages contained food and a letter signed "Atur Bhuck of Santa Fe, NM," according to reports. Detailing the content of the parcel, the district attorney's office, in a Facebook post, announced: "Each order included the name of the girl and the address of the elementary school she attends."
"The same IP address has also appeared on websites discussing girls' underwear and types of music to listen to when he visits his pen pal in Phoenix City," the post added. Reports state that the sender of the package claimed to be a 14-year-old, mentally disabled person who had been bullied.
This is creepy and weirdn Hope authorities get to the bottom of this. It might be a good idea to let your child's school know that there should be no packages expected to be delivered to the school for your child.— Linda Ouellette (@lucylu1120) April 30, 2018
The suspect reportedly asked the girls to reply to the packages a two email addresses — [email protected] or [email protected], according to WBTV. The district attorney's office said that the IP addresses of the Gmail account of the suspect appeared to originate from Houston.
The FBI said that packages of similar nature were sent to underage girls in Alabama, South Carolina and Virginia.
