SPD Investigating Threatening Letter Left at West Seattle Home

A threatening, racist letter left at a West Seattle home is being investigated as a hate crime by Seattle police.

Officers were called to the 3800 block of 22nd Avenue Southwest around 10 PM last night after a homeowner found the letter on the front door of her house. The letter included racial slurs and references to Black Lives Matter activism.

Police collected the letter and evidence and are now investigating the letter as a case of malicious harassment, Washington’s hate crime statute.
