Police would not reveal what was in the letter, but confirmed one was found with the body.
No suspects have been identified, and police are not saying whether or not the case will be treated as a hate crime.
“Evidence thus far leads us to believe this is an isolated incident,” [Lt. Mark Coit] said.
I don’t see how being an “isolated incident” prevents it from being a hate crime. They beat a woman and left a letter telling to go back to her own country. What exactly would you call that?
