Prosecutor: Predator sent packages to girls at their school
ANDALUSIA, AL (AP) - Prosecutors say unsolicited packages have been sent to two Alabama girls that were addressed to them in care of their elementary school.
The Covington County District Attorney's Office tells news outlets the Phenix City girls received the packages over the week. The office also said in a Facebook post on Sunday that authorities including the FBI report the packages contained food and a letter signed "Atur Bhuck of Santa Fe, NM," as well as visitor's packages from New Jersey.
"Bhuck" wrote he was 14-years-old, mentally disabled and a target of bullying. He asked the girls to reply at two email addresses.
The FBI says one email account appeared to originate from Houston, and that more than 50 similar packages were ordered for minor-age girls in Alabama, South Carolina and Virginia.
