Ottawa police are investigating complaints from Ottawa residents after dozens have received threatening letters in the mail, stamp-marked and sent from Calgary.
The letters ominously begin with “I know where you live” and are mostly hand written envelopes with specifically named residents and the letter inside is also hand written — but photocopied — on a regular 8½ x 11 sheet of paper.
The letter goes onto make death threats to the recipient and their families.
Ottawa Police have received 27 complaints about the letter.
Police ask that if you receive one of these letters, try not to over-handle it and they encourage you to preserve forensic evidence by putting it in a container like a seal-able freezer bag and then contact police.
Call them at 613-236-1222, ext. 2666.
